A Little Birdie Birthday

 Happy Monday, hope everyone had a good weekend.
Here is a very colorful Spring birdie and floral card that I made using printed digital elements from a junk journal kit and a digital sentiment from an old NLIB biz. the round floral element was die cut using a circle die and then adhered on a white card mat die cut with a zig zag edge seal die. The sentiment was red-framed in PSE. Three enamel dot gems were added at top right corner.

I used a Splitcoaststampers sketch for my A7 layout design.

ImagineTheArt Designs Etsy Colorful Birds Junk Journal Kit (digital)
From the Heart Birthday Candle Birdbrain digi set (sentiment)
Springhill Digital card and HP Satin Photo paper
Bearly Art Colored blank card bases and envelopes
Spellbinders shiny red enamel dot gems
Spellbinders Classic Circles die
Avery Elle Signature Seal die

I also printed out a half sheet element of the back of the card, adding a stamped and punched Hero Arts siggie. Inside the card, another selection from the kit that I composed an innie sentiment on before printing out. Click on either photo to enlarge.

Last look.
This digital clip art has come in handy since I've started having problems with my hand, which is worsened by a lot of coloring at present.
Thank you so much for your visit today!
Enjoy the day!

I like both and I think this card is both. I love flowers and cute animals

How very eclectic, Aimslee. Wonderful combination of images and color. Reminds me of the art posters I used to color back in the 70's. Thanks for being inspired by the HSS Mood Board and joining us this round. Cheers, Jolanda - DT

So colorful, Aimeslee--definitely brings Spring to mind! :-) I find it hard to reconcile busy backgrounds with busy focal elements, but it works wonderfully here. So glad you're using digital elements to continue making awesome stuff! Hope your hand feels better soon. xo
