A Spring Thank you

I bought my first stamps from Taylored Expression last month, but have just not had the time to ink them up and give them a try. These stamps are from the new Whimsical Wishes line. The set has a couple different trees and lots of little detail stamps. I used Taylor's Weekend sketch for my card.


First, I stamped the tree top and then over it I stamped the tree trunk with Palette Ink in Dark Chocolate. The bird house and the birds are cut out and popped up. I used twine to hang the bird house and tie the button. There a lime green stickles on the leaves and Martha Stewart Brownstone glitter on the tree trunk. The edges are sponged with SU Baja Breeze. I used my sewing machine to zig zag around the edges.
Thanks for looking,
Melody
