Happy Birdie

This is for 2 challenges. The Mojo Monday Sketch #82 and the April Verve release week Color challenge. How stinking fun is this? You will be seeing a lot of Verve from me this week. I am so excited to ink these stamps up.

Here is my version. I am so sorry about this picture. It has been very rainy and downcast here. We are supposed to have fabulous weather for the rest of the week, so the pictures will get better!

This is for my father in law. His birthday isn't until the end of May, but I am working ahead. I am in love with the Papertrey Ink free anniversary set. It is fabulous and the bitty dots make me smile.
I loved the polkadots so much that it quickly became a theme. I stamped white polkadots on the lemon tart paper, used the swiss dots dry embossing folder and then my punch for the bottom 2 layers has fun dots punched out as well. To top it all off I paper pierced around the center 2 pieces. It really ties everything together. I also tried to make a bow with the button center like Nichole showed us how to do on her blog. It turned out good for my first try.

I really like the look of Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart together. It is rather pretty if you ask me LOL! The soft brown was a challenge for me. I ended up stampin off the close to cocoa to make it look softer.
It's a good life!
