Enjoy the little things ...

Good morning! It's the first of the month, and that means a New Challenge over at the House of Cards starts today. This month we have a Theme/Color Challenge for you ... use Birds and/or the Colors in our Inspiration Photo to create your project this month. 

I wanted to go with the Birds for my card today, and I couldn't believe how hard it was to find bird stamps in my extensive collection of stamps.

I chose the Darcies Little Things (POL27). It's an older set that I've always loved, and don't use enough. I went with Black and White for my colors because I love the boldness, especially how the stamps just pops off the card.

I started off by stamping the branch, added the bird and a couple of leaves. Then I stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock, cut it out with a die along with a strip of black. Using thin 3D tape I added the sentiment to my stamped panel by wrapping it around the stamped background which I layered on black cardstock and then my cardbase.

Make sure you hop on over to the House of Cards Challenge Blog for all of the details for entering our Monthly Challenge. I can't wait to see what inspires you this month!
