Pssst... birdy secrets

My crafty treat to myself for this month was a set of stamps called Bird Notes by Crafty Secrets that I've been coveting for several months now. Since ordering them, I discovered I'd won $25 at Cornish Heritage Farms in the online referral program so I get extra treats this month but I've only just ordered so those haven't arrived yet. In the meantime, this is my first Bird Notes card:



Crafty Secrets are a member company at Splitcoaststampers and once a week they have a challenge so I played with this one as the starting point for this card but simplified the layers significantly and switched the colours so that the green is dominant rather than the pink.

While I'm here: a toot for the eBay seller I bought from: fantastic customer service and shipping for this medium set was only $2.70 - I reckon it would have cost that for UK postage! The seller is fourcreativeseasons and she has lots of scrapping, stamping and papercrafting items - worth a look!

Supplies: Bird Notes set (Crafty Secrets), Gingham Backgrounder and Hello from Silhouette Blooms I (both Cornish Heritage Farms), Tim Holtz Distress ink Antique Linen, Clearsnap fluid chalk ink Rouge, Dark Brown, Warm Green, Bazzill Monochromatic blue-greens pack, piercer, Nestabilities Classic oval die, chalk, Prismacolor pencils/OMS/stump

Thanks for taking a 'peep'!
