I went outside the other day and I couldn't get over the sound of the birds, they were chirping and tweeting like you wouldn't believe. It was a sound I haven't heard in months and so that was the inspiration for the image I decided to use. I also used one of my very favorite color combinations- pink, green, and brown.
I stamped and colored my image using my Stampin' Up! markers. My chocolate chip layer was cut using the Adorning Accents Edgelits Die and my big shot. Just along the bottom of my card I decided to add two rows of paper piercing using my SU mat pack and paper piercing tool. I like to do this sometimes to add that little extra something without going overboard.
And finally, to complete my card I added some pleated ribbon just under my image panel and then I added a small button with a twine bow tied in the center. Below I posted a close up photo so that you could see the coloring I did on the image.
