sweet sunday sketch challenge #8- Happy Blue Bird

I had time this week to Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week. Here is her sketch.

Here is what I came up with, a blue bird singing atop a green hill...happiness. I have seen other people doing this "hill" thing with paper and sponging and so I decided to try it and I like the way it came out a lot!

The Stamp set's I used for this card are A Little Birdie Told Me and Warm Words. The colors are Old Olive, Basic Black, Whisper White and Brilliant Blue. The ribbon is the Whisper White Organza Ribbon and the buttons came from Bold Bright button assortment that is retired. I used the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds 1 Texture plate to emboss the Old Olive card base and the Scallop Edge punch to scallop the Whisper White card stock that is peaking out from behind the main image.

Here is a close up of the Ribbon and the Buttons. You can also see that I pierced the Basic Black card stock.

Thanks for Looking!
