I got a few minutes to make a card for today's SCS inspiration challenge. This week's challenge is the Chasing Fireflies card, which I've always thought had great stuff. I chose this cute fabric birdhouse - I just loved the colors and the flowers.
I used the set Cheep Talk for my stamping. The branch is old olive, the bird real red and basic black, and the little flowers regal rose. I paired it with this pretty red floral paper from October Afternoon's Cherry Hill line and some regal rose dotted DP, and to mirror the roof of the birdhouse I repeatedly stamped the "because" stamp from Define Your Life. I thought that went well with the "hello there!" sentiment. I used black layers, an olive card base (5.5" square) and a scrap of ribbon and some vanilla brads for embellishments. I love how this turned out!
