CTD482 and CASCSC261 Birdie Thank You

Happy Saturdayday, everyone!  I have a quick little clean-and-simple card today using the gorgeous color palette from Color Throwdown and the fun little sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches:

I have been searching for a stamp set from Lawn Fawn (Peace Joy Love) and finally found another stamper selling it from her stash! YAY!  Technically it's a Christmas set, but I set out to make a thank you card using some of the images and this is what I came up with:

I recently got an adorable BoBunny Felicity Collection 6x6 pad, and it had this sweet little kraft and pink paper that was perfect for the challenge colors!  I stamped my birds in white craft ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, then heat-embossed them with some white embossing powder; the heart was stamped in Versamark, then Blushing Bride ink and embossed with clear embossing powder on Powder Pink cardstock.  All three were easy to fussy-cut and I plopped them on top of a little gray branch:

I used my Smoky Slate Blend to color a pearl for a  subtle wee bit more prettiness!

Finally, I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Whimsy:

I really wanted to add another layer but since it is a CAS challenge, I resisted!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy your day and be blessed!

Yay, so happy you found this set, LeAnne! I have a couple of discontinued stamp sets that I am stalking too, lol! This is so pretty, love how you used this set to make a non-Christmas card. I love the colors and the birds look great embossed in white. Pinning this right away!
