Pretty Bird

Tweet! Here's a Happy Mother's Day card. My mom likes birds quite a bit so I guess that was the inspiration for this card, along with a Canadian Stamp Talk Challenge to use sequins.

The sentiment is a Quietfire Design stamp. The paint splotches are stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The sequins are not your run-of-the-mill hexagons. These are round with concentric circles and I have had them for 10 years or more. I added a few gemstones to compliment. Shading is Broken China Distress Ink. The bird is a Marianne die popped up on foam tape.

I was going for Clean and Simple, but I just cannot help myself! I am sharing this for the Mother's Day challenges at:

This is adorable! I love what you did with the blue paint on the left. I'm glad you went with blue for the splotches instead of white!! (he, he!)

Thanks for linking to our Mothers' Day challenge at Cut it Up!
