Unity Birdy

I love this little bird. I had some thank you cards to make for some very generous people and I chose this bird for the main image. This was included in the box of 100 stamps that I received awhile back from Angela at Unity. The "thanks" and the flowers in the second card were too. I also used the Sassafras Sunshine Lollipops paper and crystal stickers over the flowers that I received in the mail this week from Broni (Go to her blog now and drool all over your keyboard. She is phenominal!). Yes, I won more blog candy. I'm quitting entering for awhile, as much as it kills me. (I don't want anyone to think I'm greedy.)
The card base is textured SU Baja Breeze. I mounted both on SU Pumpkin Pie. On the first card I used the ticket corner punch, then added orangy rhinestones on the corners. On the second card I took the guard off of the same punch and made the little reverse scallop edge. On both cards I stamped the images with Black StazOn and colored with Prismacolor Pencils.
The second card is actually for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I turned it on it's side, but it's there. Try a challenge or two. Thanks for looking!
