The "Mess on my Desk" card #4

Hello everyone!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week. It is almost time for a three day weekend and I cannot wait. I know, I know, I just started back to work but I am already tired!!

I used My Favorite Things set "Sweetheart Birdie Brown" to create this card.

I had die cut, stamped both the bird and Birdie, as well as colored each in using Copic marker's months ago. I did try to do a pleat technique on Birdie's dress but it was an epic fail. I just wound up making it blue. I did do a little cross hatching on her hat to make it look like straw. That part wasn't a failure!!

The first thing I did was trim a piece of patterned paper into a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" rectangle. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink and adhered it to a white card base. Next I die cut and adhered a piece of yellow card stock over the pattered paper. I then die cut a fence out of a scrap of kraft card stock and adhered it to the middle of the yellow card stock.

Birdie and the bird where then adhered using foam adhesive. The sun was created by using a vellum flower with a die cut sentiment circle over it. Both were in my pile of stuff. The last touch was to use my clear Wink of Stella pen to put a little shine on the bird and into the middle of the sun flower.

After planning this card, it took me all of 15 minutes to put together. That includes the die cutting of the fence and card stock paper. It usually takes me two hours to make a card so I am happy!!

Thank you for stopping by. I really appreciate it. Have a great night!!
