Bird Punch Wreath

This weekend I just seemed to be caught up in making wreaths for my card (see previous post).  So I thought what would the bird look like in the middle of a wreath.  So using the bird punch, I punched out quite a few of the leaves and then punched out the bird and the wing.  I also was hooked on cherry cobbler card stock and is what I used for the bird and the wing and the circles.  Once the punching was finished, using a sponge dauber, I sponged all the leaves and the wing with the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and then I sponged the bird with the Frost White Shimmer Mist.  It really added some sparkle to it.

My sketch inspiration came from Create with Connie and Mary.  Such a wonderful sketch and after doing the wreath yesterday, I wanted to used the bird and it all seemed to pop into place.

The card stock I used was cherry cobbler, early espresso, always artichoke, and the designer paper is deck the halls.  After I adhered the early espresso and the always artichoke together, I then used the textured impressions embossing folder Northern Flurry.  And, the ribbon is the 1/8" taffeta very vanilla.

Have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for looking!
