Here is my project:
I decided to pull out my Live Simply cartridge and use one of the cute little bird images for this card.  It is Bird1 and I cut it at 2".  My sentiment is from TPC Studio "Brush Stroke Greetings", and I stamped it with ColorBox Chestnut Ink.  My paper comes from Heidi Grace Designs 6x6 Sunshowers paper pack.  I embossed the bird wing with Cuttlebug's Birds and Swirls folder, the branch with Paper Studio's Wood Grain folder, and the yellow mat with Darice's Flower Frenzy folder.  My ribbon is from JoAnn's and my paper flower is from Michael's.  Maybe I am just too anxious for spring to get here, but this card cheered me up from some winter blues!  Hope that you are crawling along with us at FCCB and checking out the new DT members!
Thanks for checking in!!!
