Sweet Birds

It's a new year and time for me to use some new products.  Not just newly purchased, but things I bought (who knows when) and have never used!!  I'm also on a mission to use my stash of beautiful patterned paper whenever I can.  I love the pretty paper and buy it, but then don't know what to do with it!

This year, I'm also going to try to enter more challenges.  So here is where I'm entering my card:

Where Creativity Meets C9

Dies R Us Challenge #64 - Anything Goes Using Dies

Flickr LOVE!--Handmade Cards, ATCs January Challenge Anything Goes

This card uses new to me Concord & 9th's By Your Side Bird Die.  I just love these sweet birds!!

This one gets some patterned paper from an Authentique 6x6 paper pad I've had forever!  The sentiment is also Concord & 9th's By Your Side Stamp set.  The frame is My Favorite Things Pierced Rectangle Frames.  I used Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to create the yellow background and also on the birds along with Broken China.

 Thank you for taking a look!
