How tweet of you!

Happy Saturday morning!  Just a quick post this morning before I head outside to do some pruning.  Spring is finally here!

I'm playing along in a new-to-me challenge.  Addicted to CAS (which means clean and simple).
This is ATCAS#9 Challenge, and the code word is Spring. 
I haven't created a whimsical, cute card in a while.  And since I was in the mood for something different, this is the result.

This was SO much fun to create.  And it makes me smile :)  I used patterned papers for the log, grass and the sky.  I attached the die cut grass to the back of the white panel.  All of the other pieces (I fussy cut the log, leaves and bird) are adhered to the card base.  I attached the white panel, with grass, using foam tape to give the scene some dimension.  Oh, and I added a tiny drop of glossy accents to the little birdy's eye.
My intention is to put this card in my Etsy shop.  But.  I'm not sure I can part with it. I know, crazy huh?
Thanks so much for taking a look today!

What I used:
Cardstock: white (PTI), lucky limeade, daffodil delight (SU)
Ink: basic black (SU), onyx black versafine (Tsukineko)
Stamps: critters in the forest (Lawn Fawn), my peeps (Paper Smooches)
Patterned papers: this & that charming 6 x 6 pad (Echo Park), follow your heart - be amazing (MME)
Dies: long classic rectangles large (Spellbinders), die grass border (A.Muse)
Other: glossy accents (Ranger), foam tape (3M), scor-tape (Sookwang)
