I LOVE this card....I love the image, the colors, watercoloring, the DP, the simplicity, everything! I don't know how much detail you can see on it (click on it to see bigger), but I loved this Garden Pleasures set from 2001, and don't use it much, but when I saw the Inspiration Challenge at SCS, my mind went to this stamp. The sun is setting here, so it was a little difficult to get my photo. It really doesn't resemble the inspiration, but I am a big birdwatcher, I love birds, so this is what I went with. I also used the layout from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge as well. She always has great challenges! And since I am a birder, I must tell you, there is probably no bird on earth that looks like this, but it's my world so I can make the bird whatever color I want!!! :D (I made him that color so he would match the Figgy paper I used at the bottom.) He was stamped first, then I masked him and stamped the birdhouse on top. I also omitted the sentiment again, I will add it when I need to mail out the card! Thanks for looking!
