SNSS Birthday Blog Hop

Hi all! Today I'm hopping along in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps customer blog hop.



This month's theme is to make a birthday project so I inked up and colored these sweet birds from One of a Kind and paired them up with a sentiment from So Frog-getful. I got both of those sets at the Allentown stamp show last weekend...thanks, Korin! Extra birds and leaves were stamped, colored, cut out, and popped up on foam tape. The clouds and Spellbinders leaves are also up on foam tape. Stickles were added to the leaves and curly limbs.

Here's a close-up of the dimension and a shot of the sparkle...





...and here's the inside of the card where I added some DP and more die-cut leaves.



I really need to get back to decorating the insides of my cards consistently again. I used to do that all the time.....then I guess I just got lazy or something, lol!

That's it for me today. Thanks for visiting and I'll be back tomorrow with a Sweet Stop Sketch card.
