Birds a Flutter


Hello! I hope everyone is having a safe Holiday Weekend.  May we all remember what this holiday is about  and remember all the people who died while serving our country and protecting our freedom.

 
My card today was inspired by the photo inspiration challenge at Addicted to Stamps shown on the right.

I started by embossing white cardstock with Cuttlebug EF Leafy Branch and colored the raised surfaces.  I added a bird cage cut on the Cameo with a Silhouette file from Gray CS and attached with a gray metal brad and glue.  I stamped and fussy cut Hummingbirds with Flourishes stamp and Memento Grape jelly ink. The sentiment from the same set Humming Along was inked in Memento Gray Flannel. Card base is GKD Morning Fog CS.
Challenge:
Addicted to Stamps: #145 Photo - Used birds and branch from the inspiration.
Crafty Sentiments: Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown : Theme is Missing You.  This is a card that I would send to someone that I miss.
Sweet Stampin' Challenge: Birds and/or Bees

Have a great holiday! I love reading your comments. Theresa
