A Little Birdie....

I don’t think the Dotty For You paper will be leaving my desk anytime soon, so you will be seeing lots of it!  This card is based on the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the original sketch-

I couldn’t help myself, and just had to ink up the upcoming June Stamp of the Month, so consider it a sneak peek!  All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
S1206 Life is Tweet (June SOTM)
Retired Birthday Set (HB saying)
CC1017 Dotty For You
1388 Colonial White Cardstock

Design Tips- The decorative shapes were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The bird and balloons were paper pieced.  I colored the gem black for the bird’s eye with my Copic Sketch.
