Red Birds of Happiness

Remember those birds that didn't work for the last card? They flew over here. I'm not sure if they're fighting over the string or sharing a worm.

This works for the Color Challenge last week to use Crushed Curry, Real Red & Sahara Sand. It's another 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card this time out of Naturals White. I love using it for a card base because it has more body than the Whisper White. I used the Big Shot for the birds & leaves. The new Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch in the upcoming Occassions catalog would work well for this too. I stamped the Sahara Sand card stock with the Sanded Stamp before cutting the leaves to give them some texture. I really love the Scallop Trim Border punch and have been using it on everything! It will be available FREE with a $50.00 Stampin' Up! purchase during Sale-A-Bration January 5 - March 31st.
