Mojo Mondays card challenge 228

Happy Thursday all! Today we are getting nothing but rain here in Baltimore. I don't mind it, I like to walk in the rain. Now if I can only remember to buy some wellies so I can splash in the puddles! ☺

I made this card for the Mojo Mondays 228 card challenge. You can get all the deets here.

... and the sketch:

I wanted to use the "A little bird told me..." stamp, but couldn't use a circle otherwise it would have been too large. So I turned the sketch on it's side and used an oval instead. I also ran a marker around all the paper edges. 

I recently purchased a Grand Calibur by Spellbinders and I'm in love with it! I picked up some Cuttlebug embossing folders and I just LOVE using them! I'm like a little kid with a new toy!! I stamped the bird above the sentiment, and again on some pink paper, cut it out and glued it over the stamped image. I really love how this card came out!

Here's a list of supplies I used:
card stock: DCWV (greens); Bazzill Basics (black, white)
pattered paper: HOTP (gingham, pink); Frances Meyer (stripe); I'm not sure who made the green dot as the mfr. didn't put it's name/logo on the back side of the paper. If anyone happens to know who made it, I'd appreciate a heads up!
Stamps: My Cute Stamps (bird); Inkadinkado (A little bird...); Hero Arts (inside sentiment)
Ink: Tsukineko
Markers: Marvy Uchida, Tri-C
Nestabilities label die; Cuttlebug embossing folder

I hope that you enjoy the rest of your day! Thanks for stopping by!

Chris ☺
