For the Birds

Here is my card that I did for Unity's Anniversary Challenge over at SCS. They have been doing tons of fun games and giveaways and if you haven't yet - go take a look!  Anyway - todays challenge is for the birds - literally!  There has to be a bird or tree incorporated somewhere in card - so I broke out one of my new {ippity} stamps - Music of My Heart (for sale here)  I followed the sketch over at the Sketch Girl blog.  I used my cuttlebug to emboss the french script on cream parchment, tore it off center and used Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink to distress the emossing and edges.  I cut out the bird I stamped with the distress ink and accented with gold lame smooch ink.  Using my Spellbinders Fancy tags I stamped the thank you sentiment (hopefully unity will forgive me - i left off an extra "many" that just didn't fit -lol) I used my smooch around the edge of the label, added a couple flowers topped off with a crystal brad and it is done.  Thank you for looking!

Stamps: {ippty} Music of mt Heart
