This is for the Birds!"

This week's challenge at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog is called "This is for the Birds!" For the challenge you are required to create a project that incorporates at least ONE bird, and, of course, stamping!

If you know me at all you know that I haven't been a lover of any of the bird stamps that have come out so this challenge was quite the challenge for me!

Anyways, this is what I came up with! I'm fairly happy with the final results and think it looks much better in real life than it does here in this photo. I clear heat embossed the flowers on the Cancer Cannot poem and for some added dimension I heat embossed the birds and cut each one out so I could pop them up off of the card.

Thanks for taking the time to look...
