FS147 Masculine Bird

Congrats to MrsBoz for being today’s featured stamper! I choose this card to CASE. I've been wanting to do a natural bird card and I liked the blue and textured kraft on this one.

I changed 1) the sketch to the C4C12 sketch from last week 2) removed the embellishments for a more masculine look and 3) I changed the color scheme to remove the yellow and just stay with blues and browns.

I used punches for the sentiment to qualify for the C4C13 punch challenge (hey, that’s a lot of layers and punches on one card for me!)

One of my favorite things about this card (besides how the main image panel turned out!) was the embossing. When I put the kraft into the embossing folder, I also placed the striped DP layer in there. Then I embossed. I liked it so much I decided to show it off a bit by sponging all the leaves lightly with chocolate chip!
