As hostess this week for the Stampin' B's Design Team, I asked that we do a bird/birds on our card or project. My favorite bird is the Eastern Bluebird and this sure looks like one to me.
Carol aka Gingerbeary8 gave me this beautiful image along with this awesome birthday card. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...i=Gingerbeary8
No, this is not a case of Carol's card but I did do my corners a bit like hers, used the same woodsy punch, and added some greenery.
I made my flower using the Spellbinders blossom die cut. After cutting it out, I stamped it, gave it 3 coats of VersaMark to add a shine, used a stylus to curl a bit, and added my brad to the center.
Hope you'll join the Stampin B's this week with your bird card. If so, please use the keyword, StampinB.

Oh, I hope I have time to make a birdie card this week for StampinB. Of course, you would do that after I made a birdie card last week. Your image is adorable Benz and I love all the added extras. How nice for Carol to send this to you. I LOVE how you created your own flower. I have that on my list of things to do one day. I really love yours. However, I do see it's rather large and could be hiding a very large secret spy camera. Don't send it to me as I know you are trying to spy on me to zee where my zecret blog iz. You zhall nevah find out!!

Benzi, that is a great Spellbinders flower, and I like the checked pattern for it. It's unexpected. The many punchez on this card raise you to a higher status within our organization, but I notice you did NOT list your Punch Tally! Tsk tsk.

Another one for the birds! I sense a theme going on here! Love all the punching going on here! The sweet little birdies around here are doing their best to keep warm this week! :)
