Chickadee Hello

This cute little bird die reminds me of the chickadees that are eating out of our bird feeder.  Of course, they are not this color, but I was inspired by the colors on the challenge for
Sparkle and Shine.   HERE
I am also entering this card in Scrappy Land Challenge #19 Anything Goes.HERE

I was very inspired by the ombre green, and although I didn't have the mint green, I used the greens that I had.  SU Certainly Celery and Distressed Bundled Sage and Color Shine, Chartreuse.
Here is my card.

I did the ombre effect on plain white card stock and then cut out the fronds with a die.  Then on another piece of white card stock I again did the green ombre with the inks and placed a stencil over the top and sprayed with the Color Shine.  The bird is from the same die. 
I used Memory Box Garden Leafy Branches stencil
Memory box die Finnegan Fronds
The grass on the bottom is a free die that I got from My Favorite Things.
I wish you could see this IRL, I used Wink of Stella on the bird. 
Thanks so much for stopping in.  Your comments make me very happy.


  1. Fabulous card. I love the garden scene you created for your bird. Such a peaceful scene.

  2. Oh, this is super, super CUTE!!! I love your fronds with the ombre look and your sweet bird. Great layout too with the grass and pretty background. Just really nice!!!

  3. A wonderful card you created. Love the chickadee!

  4. Oh my, I love this card! I love when the birds come into my yard to the feeders and to nest and this card reminds me of looking out my windown at the backyard! That bird die is wonderful and I love the grass and the fronds! Thanks for playing along with us at Scrapy Land Challenge #19!

  5. Beautiful Ombre effect! I love your bird and grass and all of those fronds. Total Nature on a card! It's so funny how birds just land on the tippity top of a branch and it moves a little but there they stand! I am watching some right now as they land on my Hydrangeas. LOVE your card, beautifully crafted!

  6. So pretty! Love the little bird not the grass! Thank you for playing with us at Sparkle & Shine!

  7. Beautiful ombre card! Love the adorable sparkly little bird and the grass! Fabulous job my dear!

  8. I love your ombre look! Very pretty card!
