A Little Birdie Told Me

Another card that I created using the Clear Dollar Stamps "Cute Quips", which is a great sentiment set and sure to prove versatile. This card was created from inspiration that I found in the Basic Grey Sugar Rush Pad...I just loved this lilac floral print and I drew colors from it to contrast and compliment, using Paper Trey's Blush Cardstock and Martha Stewart's Essentials Paper Pad for the solid green and lilac cardstock. The little birdhouse is another single stamp from CDS which coordinated beautifully with this Cute Quip, "A Little Birdie Told Me"...After gluing my card together and photographing it, I realized that I should've drawn a post or a wire from the top of, or the bottom of the birdhouse, because it is sort of suspended in the air. All-in-all though, the birdhouse is a supercute little single stamp and coordinates beautifully with "Cute Quips". Tomorrow, February 1st, all these fabulous stamps that I've shared this week along with the rest of the CDS Design Team, will be available for purchase at Clear Dollar Stamps!
