A little bird...

Hello there! Today's card share uses a bunch of embossing and die cuts, punches, and some freehand cutting too. There is a teenie bit of stamping as well - for the sentiment! While you've seen that I've had a thing for owls, I've also developed a love of other fowl too...birds! Here's one cute little bird on a branch...As you can see, I had all kinds of fun with my Big Shot for this card! The bird is actually a Nestabilities die - one of my purchases from the Creating Keepsakes vendor fair from a few weeks ago. The dies were just too cute to pass up! I embossed the bird with the Stampin'Up! Texturz plates and also embossed the branch and background too! The branch was cut freehand from a scrap of Chocolate Chip cardstock (I'm trying to utlize my scraps!). The scallop square is a Sizzix Clear die, which I just love!
Here's the recipe - except for the Nestabilities Birdie, all other supplies are Stampin'Up!:
*Bird Nestabilities die, Scallop Square clear die
*Texturz Plates Kit #4, Stampin'Up Backgrounds Texturz 1
*Scallop oval, large and small oval punches
*Teenie Tiny Wishes stamp set
*Rose Red stamp pad
*So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Confetti White, and Whisper White card stock; Rose Red and So Saffron DSP
*Button, Certainly Celery cardstock thread
Hope you like it - thanks for stopping by today! I didn't get a chance to work on my Mojo card yesterday, but hopefully, I'll get some time later on. See you later!

What a cute card! I like making cards with the big shot and punches and not so much stamping sometimes!
