Elzybells Sneak Peeks Day 2

Good morning! I hope you are all having a good week thus far. I'm playing catch up still, almost there but I've got a class this afternoon that I'm still not 100% ready for, so I'm in a bit of a "hurry" mode this morning.

Today is day 2 of the fun Elzybells Sneak Peeks! I'm sharing some fun images from the Best Birdies stamp set, avaliable this Thursday. I love the collection of these little birdies that I'm growing, they are so fun!
I remembered I had this fun cosmo cricket birdie paper...isn't it fun with the image!? The stripe is also from cosmo cricket. I used some Summer Sunrise and Melon Berry (pti) cardstock and a little Certainly Celery (su) for my grass.I colored my birds with my copics. I used my medium scallop die from pti to make my top and bottom scallops. I used a bit of ruffly ribbon (su) and tulle for my ribbon detail. And my button is one I just added in my collection from "Downtown McKinny TX!" I got an old vintage ball jar full of vintage button while I was in TX and I'm loving what I've found thus far in the jar! I used a sketch from Caardvarks for my layout on this card.
For this second card, I used another fun image from the Best Birdies set. I stamped the flowers a couple of times to make a longer focal point and then colored them with my copics. I used some brown sparkly fluff in the center of the flowers. My paper is cosmo cricket and my ribbon is su. I made the little flowers with my 1/2, 3/4, and 1" circle punches. This layout was also inspired by a Caardvarks sketch.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying the fun by checking the other Elzybells' work...we're all enjoying the new stamps! Take care and make it great!!
