Out On A Limb

I made this card for Pat who is my oldest and dearest friend.

I began by colouring a piece of white card with Shabby Shutters and Stormy Sky Distress inks.  The stamps I have used are all from a Jofy Paper Artsy set.  The branch is actually a tree which I stamped sideways.  I stamped the birdhouse, both birds and the flowers then stamped both birds again and they were fussy cut.

Everything was  purposely coloured in a naive way with my Spectrum Noir pencils and the larger bird was stuck on with double sided adhesive pads.

Something was missing .... so I stamped the "tweet tweet" sentiment (also from the same set) three times.  The tiny bow is crochet yarn and the sentiment is from a clear set by Kaiser Craft, called Friendship sentiments.

I would like to enter this card at the Shopping Our Stash blog where the challenge is titled "Out on a Limb" and also
