Last year at our Group Gathering, I punched a bunch of these birds and branches, and I don't think I had used any of them yet. It was about time, as we are "gathering" again TOMORROW! (We'll be at the Archivers in West Des Moines all day on Monday and all morning on Tuesday, if you want to stop in and say hello. :) )
I sponged some navy ink around the edges of the bird pieces. I had cut the oval out last year, also. I added a tiny brown pearl for the bird's eye. The patterned paper is from a stack from The Paper Studio, matted with navy. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The card base is ivory. The punch is from Stampin' Up! (Edited to add: The card base and bird are ivory, not white.)
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
