Happy Birthday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here's a card that came out of my four-day jammie stamping session.  I created this for the CARDS Blog Gallery Challenge - which was to create a card using birds (no owls!).  I recently picked up this darling little Memory Box stamp from Ellen Hutson - I love it and will be using it again real soon!  The cloud image is from a new American Crafts Dear Lizzy stamp set that I picked up at Hobby Lobby the other day - 40% off!  YAY!  I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it with Frost embossing powder.  Love that color!  The cute gingham paper is from A Muse.  I colored the leaves and birdies with my Copics.

STAMPS:  Dotty Tree Birds (Memory Box), Dear Lizzy (American Crafts), Birthday Basics (Papertrey Ink)
INK:  Versamark (Tsukineko), Rich Cocoa (Memento)
PAPER:  Mini Gingham DP (A Muse), White CS (Neenah)
ACCESSORIES:  Corner Rounder (EK Success), Hibiscus Burst Ribbon (Papertrey Ink), Copic Markers, Medium Scallop Border Die (Papertrey Ink), Cuttlebug, 3-D Dots (EK Success), Frost Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts)

Thanks for stopping by today!  It means the world to me that you take the time out of your day to visit.
