I used a Paper Pumpkin kit for the patterned paper and flowers. I placed a stencil over the pp and added the vines. The stencil is from A Colorful Life. The bird dies and branch are from a Memento set. I used Peacock ink and cardstock which matches the color on the pp. The light green is Mint Macoron and the peach is from Hobby Lobby. It is a close match to the flowers. The greeting and “meep” are from a Paper Smooches set.
As I created this card, I listened to the birds singing outside. I love birds and this was a fun challenge.

Love that your stenciled your vines over patterned paper. It definitely brings more interest to the background. Fun die cut birds and sentiments. Great card and design.
Thank you! I have never used pp in this way. It was enjoyable to try something different.
Great card. The stencil over the PP really adds interest and texture. The birds and branch are lovely. I can almost hear them singing.
Thank you! This die set was purchased over a year ago on the clearance rack. It was time to use it. I was so surprised as how much I really like it! I have a few others that need attention as well.
Always fun to shop our own stash. Great to see you using your recently organized stencils. Your creativity really sings on this beauty.
Thanks! Yes, the organized stencils are wonderful. Now we are preparing to organize the larger stencils as I purchased a new binder.
