Hello Birdie

Hello friends, the last few days have been a taste of spring for us, it is my favourite season and so welcome after a cold winter. 

I could not resist creating a 'beachy' card using the patterned paper from the Free Gift with Love Cardmaking 17 - aptly named Sea Shore.

The bird is from Katzelkraft and has been coloured using Chameleon Pens.  It has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up onto a Spellbinders  Pierced Circle Nestabilities and Seth Apter Robo Star Etched Dies - these have been cut/embossed using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" and popped up onto a Nestabilities Celebrations Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies, using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  These layers have been popped up onto a yellow card base - also using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

The sentiment is from the Hello Geo Heart Wild & Free by Debi Adams Etched Dies and has been adhered using glue.
This card is linked to the following challenges:
