Last week I saw a card that I really liked here: Bonnie Szwalkiewicz - The Craftiblog. Since I had the SU bird punch I decided I would make one right away. Bonnie's card is really neat while mine is much more simple, but I used the same idea.
The red bird was made from a scrap of Real Red card stock and then I lightly sponged the edge of the bird and wing with some Close to Cocoa ink to give it a little more character. The branch was punched from white card stock and sponged with colors.
Among my wide collection of embossing folders I have one that looks like a wood grain so it was the perfect chance to pull it out to use on Chocolate Chip card stock.
The little banner was created by stamping the sentiment first on a strip of white card stock. Then I trimmed down the width of it and scored 2 lines on each side of the sentiment about 1/4" apart so that one was folded back and one forward. I mounted the sentiment with pop dots on the far edges.
There is one thing I would change..........I would have done something more with the background behind the bird/branch. Maybe just sponging a light blue for some sky with a cloud.
Here is a picture of Bonnie's lovely creation:
