Birthday Chickadees

This card is was inspired by today's Inspiration Challenge - IC322 - at Splitcoaststampers. My inspiration is the beautiful mailbox at Charleston Gardens found here: https://www.charlestongardens.com/index2007.cfm?categoryID=504&productID=4295&action=display.product&cname=Home Accessories,Mailboxes&pname=Chickadee Wall Mount Mailbox .

The sketch is challenge DS37 at http://deconstructingjen.com/.


I didn't have a chickadee stamp, so I found a cute little chickadee image and printed and cut him out. The metallic background was run through my cuttlebug. Stamped and heat embossed "Happy birthday" from Hero Arts on my pretty heather green cardbase and added some of my favorite green ribbon to the bottom of the metallic panel. Popped the little birdies up on pop dots and there you go. I just love the way this came out. Hope you like it too. tfl


I'm also entering this in an "Anything Goes" challenge - DYSU#57 - at doyoustackup.
