A Little Birdie Told Me...


The sketch layout for Wednesday's Challenge is shown here. I didn't make piece #4 as large as suggested because once the card was forming in my head I could see the birds holding the message on the twine. Also, I've used two strips of sticky strip for "piece #2 to hold the glitter instead of using paper. I've stamped the birds directly onto the saffron background in order to get their legs and feet on the card without having to cut them out. This is a strategy I've seen on other cards throughout the blog world, and I'm happy to have glommed onto it.

Happy Stampin'! - Joan
