elegant birds

Here is a card I made using the Elegant Birds set from My Cute Stamps. I flipped the branch stamp from the set thinking that it looks like a sunflower plant. =)

I used the beloved Clouds background stamp from Hero Arts and this punch by Martha Stewart for the grass.I used the pink polka dot Japanese masking tape again thinking that the pink dots echoed the pink on the bird.

That's all I have for today. Hope you have a Happy Hump Day! =)
