a little birdie told me

i have been wanting to play along with the AEI(love)U challenge ever since they posted the inspiration picture! i LOVE it!! 

but after several failed attempts with washi tapes, wood veneers and mists...i almost gave up. lol! and then the idea for my card hit me, and after (literally) 45 minutes of masking, the card was finished! :)

i used all of my avery elle stamp sets for this card! granted i only have 4, but they're all on there! the little birdie was stamped and fussy cut and then popped up for dimension, along with one of the clouds.
then for the 'omg', i stamped it on the white cardstock, then stamped it again on that light pink. i used my craft knife to cut out the letters and then glued it to the card. so fun! and i can't wait to do it wiht more of the sentiments on the 'celebrate' stamp set! :)

now, onto the sentiment, i used sayings from 'hipster-potamus', 'funky monkey' and 'what's up?'. combine those sets with lots of washi tape, and ink (and inky, inky fingers) and i created the 'little birdie' sentiment on my card! :) i also stamped it out on a scratch piece of paper first to make sure it worked. and on the card it's not perfectly straight, but oh well! :)

so that's it! i purposefully chose the colors to match the ones in the inspiration photo. and the background of my card was chosen to mimic the feathers on some of those arrows in the picture! :) 

so that's it!
