Punch Bunch Birthday
Today is so much cooler - I can certainly live with this temperature! It really is a beautiful day, such a change from the humidity and heat we have had for quite a while. I think April and May are usually the most pleasant months of the year here.
This card is made for the CCMC143 sketch challenge and also for the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge this week. With the latter we had to use eyelets on the card. Well I have not used those things for so long, I had almost forgotten how and it took me half the afternoon to find my eyelet setting tools LOL!! I have bags and boxes of eyelets - enough for the rest of my life!
I do not take any credit for devising these little birds and I don't know who did - I will have to ask Janey as we made a card using them at the retreat last year. I think they are so cute. Their bodies are made with the SU 3/4 inch circle and run through the Polka Dots embossing folder. Their wings are the little wings from the SU bird punch and they have been run through the Textured Impressions embossing folder as is the bottom half of the background DSP.
