Little Birdies

Last night there was a package waiting for me from Papertrey Ink. I totally splurged the other day and bought a boatload of stamps and other little things that I had been eye-ing for awhile now.

So I decided to play last night and come up with something for a few challenges out there. Here is what I came up with:
Challenges:
Cuttlebug Spot: It's for the Birds
Whimsy Stamps: Sew, Sew, Sew
2 Sketches 4 You: Sketch to the right

Well there is alot going on here. I embossed the tan card stock, distressed the edges and then sewed it to the background.

I cut the scalloped background polka dot circle with the Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge. The little "flowers" at the bottom were the same scalloped circles cut and layered. If you look closely, I stamped the center of the flower with the Papertrey Ink Background Basics Text Style stamp.

The little birdies are a Papertrey Ink Stamp from Everyday Button Bits. I have just loved that set since it came out, and I finally broke down and bought it.

Thanks for Looking!
