For the Birds for the Merry Monday Challenge

Greetings, Stampers! Today's project has many of the same ingredients as yesterday's project, which you can see by clicking here. Why, you ask?  Well, because I hadn't put away the supplies from the night before! Truly, though, by looking at both cards I think you can appreciate the versatility of Stampin' Up products. Same stamp set, same package of DSP, entirely different occasion and card.

The inspiration, no surprise, was a challenge. The Merry Monday sketch challenge provided the perfect layout for my ice skating little birdie. Isn't he the cutest?

I stamped the little birdie on Whisper White Card Stock with Black Stazon Ink (both also on my desk from the night before). Then, I cut the image out with a Labels Collection Framelit.  I stamped the snowflakes with a stamp from the Confetti Stamp Set, which coordinates perfectly with For the Birds.  The edges were sponged with Baja Breeze Ink, and the image was matted with a larger size Framelit cut in Cherry Cobbler Card Stock.
