A Little Birdie Told Me...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge is just the kind I like. It's a KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweetie) and, when you've had a week like mine, that's perfect. This is such a simple card, that I made it in 10 minutes, making liberal use of my Big Shot and some fab punches.
For this card, I die cut a large scallop circle as the base of my card. Then, I punched out the bird and branch, running the chickie's wing though the Big Shot with an embossing folder before adhering. The Modern Label Punch was an easy way to frame my sentiment, and, for just that little something extra, Liquid Pearls circled my sweet little chickadee.
