A Little Bird Told Me

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Our challenge hostess Joanne Grzelak finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Joanne says ..... When she thinks of April she also thinks of flowers….spring is here and flowers are blooming. That is probably why April is National Garden Month. Make a card that includes floral or garden images.

My card today uses some new stamps I just received which I have been trying to get my hands on for a few months now ... I finally found a shop who had them in stock. This uses the Spring Tweets stamp set from Stampendous. 

I decided to create a Z Fold Card using the Katie Label Pivot Card die set for the last to pages of the card. 

When the card is folded this is the front of the card.

And a close up look at the two pages that have the Katie Label Pivot Card. I also made use of a freebie set I got recently from a magazine for the sentiments which turned out to be perfect for these images.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Such a sweet card, beautifully coloured birds and this idea of using the Kaitie label die just take this card to another level.
