Summer Fun with Birds

For the current Joan's Gardens' Challenge, we
need to use a Bird Theme, a branch and leaves (mine are stamped) , use blue (used papers and inks), and use a frame on our card. I had purchased some Marianne dies back in April and have never used them. This was the perfect challenge to make use of them as well as the frame die that I purchased at the same time. To begin my card I stamped the branch with leaves on white CS and colored with Copics and sponged the background with blue ink using a cloud template. Added grass with ink and marker.  I then used the dies to cut out the bird (blue CS), birdhouse and picket fence in white CS. Attched these items with pop  up dots and tape.Cut the Frame out of Lighter Blue CS and placed over the image. I decided to wait and add a sentiment when I use the card. This was a fun card to design.
