Happy March

I'm playing along with My Craft Spot challenge #47 - For the Birds.  My card has an awesome color combination of Lagoon and Sorbet and lots of layers.  So Happy March!

I started with Sorbet A2 card.  I added a pattern paper I found in a stack of DCWV with the same Lagoon and Sorbet colors.  I used  the following cartridges for my card:  Elegant Edges pg. 65 <Flower3> cut at 4" for the center piece.  My bird is found in Live Simply <Bird1-s> cut at 3", I also used the layers for the wing and leaves.  The flower is from George & Basic shapes cartridge, pg. 120.  I cut 3 each in the following sizes, 2", 1-1/2" and 1" on dotted Sorbet paper from My Minds Eye.  I also cut the white circle found on pg. 108 at 3".  All other paper from Close to My Heart and cut 1/4" smaller than the piece below it. 

To finish this card I sponged all bird and leaf pieces with Lagoon ink, all flower pieces with Sorbet ink, ink from Close to My Heart.  After sponging I added black line details around the edges of these pieces.  Stamped my sentiment, two stamps from Close to My Heart in Sorbet and Black.  Added lighter lagoon brads From American Craft to center of flowers and 3 at the lower right corner.  Small adhesive pearls around the center cut out and a ribbon finish off my card.

Catch the Frenzy!
