March Stamp of the Month: Sunshine Birdies

March is here along with signs of spring like the cutest Close To My Heart stamp of the month, Sunshine Birdies!  I am so loving this stamp set!  I made a quick and easy card for this month's blog hop.  (If you're already hopping, then you've arrived from Melinda's blog.  You'll visit Lela's blog next.)
My card started with the Penelope paper pack and a sketch from Wishes.  Don't you love how cheerful this palette is?  On the Crystal Blue card stock base, I stamped the sentiment in Honey and then embellished it with green epoxy triangles.  For the focal image, I stamped the tree branch in Pear first and then the cute little bird in Thistle, swiping the edges in Crystal Blue.  To keep the sun shining, I stamped the sun in Honey on the Honey striped square.  Once I pieced the card together, I added the little music notes stamp in Thistle onto the card base.

Here's a frugal tip for you: the green shimmer trim on center stripe doesn't go all the way across the card.  I used two small pieces (one on the left and one on the right) rather than one long piece.

Thanks for perching here a moment.  You're going to get so many great ideas for the March stamp of the month, Sunshine Birdies, so go visit Lela next!

Great card! I too love how you made the stamped image pop with the layers of squared behind it.
