WMSC68 & CR84FN40 - A Little Birdie Told Me

Today I have a card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #68 as well as CR84FN40.  The sketch is by Claire Brennen:



Isn't it a good sketch with lots of ways to interpret it?  For more details about this sketch challenge, click here:

This weeks CR84FN40 colors are red, brown and kraft.  For more details of this challenge, click here.  Who doesn't love those three colors?  I have used them many times and this time went CAS with my card design.

Here's my card:

I used dark chocolate cardstock stamped with a woodgrain pattern for the card base and Waltzingmouse stamps Sewing Box Hugs for the cute little bird.  I stamped it onto red cardstock and added a gingham texture to it with all three layers popped up on dimensionals.  The kraft notebook page has the sentiment stamped over and over in dark chocolate ink.  At the top, I made a little "It's Your Birthday" badge using the same red and brown gingham and some dark chocolate cardstock stamped with a woodgrain pattern to mimic the badge's ribbon.  It is attached to the notepad with a little mini clothespin.  I attached the note book page to the cardbase with dark chocolate twine.  This little card just makes me smile.  That little bird gets me every time!

I LOVE this card. It's so amazing. Love the dimensional bird, the twine, the background stamping on the spiral notebook page (how did you ever get things so straight?) the medallion clipped on, the gingham....(did I miss anything) This is a card that packs a punch. Also, I like how you have the woodgrain going horizontal. I always seem to use it the other way, but this looks so nice.
