A Bird for Mom — FMS434

It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is the talented and very witty New Yorker, Linda Callahan.  She has a good one for us!  Take a look:

I finished my last card for mother’s day with this one.  My mother-in-law loves birds, so I knew exactly what I wanted to use for this card — the beautiful Free as a Bird Bundle.  I think this dsp is some of the prettiest ever that Stampin’ Up has made.

I started by using my paper snips to cut out this pretty bird and the flowering branch.  I placed it on a labels die-cut and stamped the sentiment which is from an old Paper Pumpkin stamp set.

I stamped some of the little flowers from the coordinating stamp set on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and placed the dsp pieces and focal piece on top.  A little bow made from linen thread and some Champagne Rhinestone jewels were added as embellishments.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what you create as we browse the gallery each week.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
