Sing Birdies Sing!

Every morning I wake up hearing the birds chirping outside. It's a good sound to hear in the morning because it tells me the weather is warm out! This card is going to 2 challenges. One is for the My Unity Place. You can click the link at my sidebar to see what's going on over there. Their challenge is to use embossing, and of course your Unity stamps! The other challenge is here at Unity's Challenge Blog and we are to use birds, Unity stamps again! I embossed the card front with a Cuttlebug folder, and used chalks to color the raised images. I stamped the birdcage, then used a Sizzix Scalloped Circle to cut it out. I colored those birds in with a watercolor pencil. I layered it on another scalloped circle. I wanted to add something to the scallops, so I got out my much neglected Fiskars Scrapboss, and embossed some circles in each scallop. Better. A little ribbon and flowers, and the sentiment from Birdie Duet set. Thank you for stopping by!
