I haven't used my Bird Punch in so long that today was the perfect day! We have a new color challenge today at Create with Connie & Mary:

My Card:

I opted to use designer paper from the Neutrals Paper Stack for my background layer this week instead of white or vanilla. I stamped directly on the designer paper using an image from the Flowering Flourishes stamp set and Coastal Cabana Ink. I also added a few Rhinestone Jewels for a little bit of bling:

For the star I used two different sizes from the Stars Framelits Dies and cut it all in one swoop with my Big Shot Machine:

Please visit the design team to view lots of talented girls and lots of inspiration to get you into the stamping mood! Sorry for the short post, I'm still trying to catch up from convention & vacation!

Supplies Used:
