Embellish Challenge with birds

WooHoo!  I'm so excited that I'm able to play in a card challenge!!  Oh how I've missed playing.  It's been a while, but when I was briefly blurfing earlier today, I happened across Embellish's Color challenge and made the colors immediately caught my eye - they remind me of the flowers and lushness of Hawaii!  I knew I had to play.  Here's a look at the Embellish colors and inspiration:
And here's my card:
I loved putting this card together.  As you can see, I've used the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die again.  The leaves for the birds are actully punched out of a Crate and Barrel catalog - it was a pretty green comforter!  Here's the recipe for you:
{Thinking of you birdie}
*Stamps: Curly Cute
*Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Playdate DSP, Sweet & Sour DSP, Woodland Walk DSP
*Inks: Early Espresso Classic Ink Pad
*Accessories: Extra Large Bird Punch, Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die, Subtles Designer buttons, Basic Pearls Jewels, twine
Thanks for visiting!  Bye for now :)

Beautiful card, Rose! I like your idea of using a catalog as your patterned paper for the leaves!
