I was inspired to create a trio of cards (this is the first) using the Blossom Party Sizzix Die, Pursuit of Happiness stamp set and Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral & Rich Razzleberry color combination. The string for the sign is a very narrow strip of Basic Black cardstock. The card needed a bit of sparkle (my middle name), so I spritzed the tail feathers and wing with a mixture Frost White Shimmer Paint and Alcohol. It gives a nice subtle, well………..sparkle 😎 to the card. The coolest part was using a pencil eraser to create the striped effect on the blades of grass. When I added those it made the card!!!
- STAMP: Pursuit of Happiness (sentiment) , Delightful Decorations (bird body)
- PAPER: Garden Green, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
