Birdhouse Birthday

My new stamp club is starting up this weekend, which means I get to stamp more than once this week! LOL! I always like to have my stampers play with new stuff, and this card fits the bill. It's a CASE of this card by Mary Fish, which I just loved and thought could easily work for any occasion. I'm also entering this card in the paper piercing challenge at the Friday Mashup.

The colors I chose are Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip. The main image is from the hostess set Up in the Air, which is in the Occasions mini. Also in the Occasions mini is the pleated ribbon - this stuff is gorgeous - as well as the Edgelit die which created the scallop border. I used the Christmas stamp from Perfect Punches but covered the sentiment with one from Up, Up & Away. The embossed polka dots and paper piercing finish off this fun card. 

I'll be back tomorrow with my OCC card for this week! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Lori,

I really like your colour combination. Fab layout and that piercing that you've done is just the right finishing touch!

Thanks for sharing your pretty card with us.
