Flourishes Love Birds

Images©Flourishes, LLC

I soooo love these sweet little birds from Flourishes Love Nest set. They are as cute at can be, and I couldn't wait to showcase them on this Kick Stand card (developed by Kirsten DuBosque). My card is a different size tho, and measures 4¼ x 4¼ inches. I used Wild Wasabi for the base, and the patterned paper is Two Scoops by BasicGrey (Jacksonbelle Embellishments). The birds are stamped with StazOn Jet Black on watercolor paper, and colored with my classic inks and Aqua Painter. I stamped the birds three times, and paper-pieced them for a nice look. The circles and scalloped circle is created using my Nestabilities. The beautiful ribbon was purchased at Flourishes as well.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a wonderful weekend!!
