Isn't this a cute picture? It's the inspiratinal picture from Paper Lovin' Gals this week and I used it as well as the sketch from Stamping 411 for my card this week. Come and play along taking anything from the picture you like to inspire your creativity. It certainly wasn't the snow that inspired me as I sit here in the middle of an Australian summer with the air conditioner on lol. But that is the great thing about having a picture, you can take whatever you like, layout, colours, theme, or a combination to inspire your creativity.
I was so excited when I saw the stamp set Language of Friendship in the 2011-12 Stampin' Up! catalogue, I just love my 2-Step Bird Punch and this set fits perfectly with him, there is even a stamp to give him legs! In my card however I see him just taking off in flight from the vines, so he doesn't need legs. I wanted a touch of the deep red of the berries so used Cherry Cobbler to colour in the flowers and the detail near the bird's eye. The sentiment is also from the Language of Friendship set, and the vines are from Elements of Style.
