Conversations With Birds

Hello.  Welcome.  I had such fun making this card.  I saw this sketch over at WOW! Embossing Powder Challenge
and lovely colours over at YNS 
and came up with this



I've used the pink, blue and blank cheque (I went with a dark cream) colours.  I cut my base card using Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die from dark cream card and added Old Paper and Frayed Burlap distress ink.  I cut my panels and stamped words from Stamplorations Bloom Sketches in Salty Ocean and Worn Lipstick.  I edged the panels with the same ink colours and clear embossed the words and the inked edges.  I stamped the birds from Stamplorations Small Birds stamp set, embossed in black and coloured with Brusho's.
