Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge #13

This card is for the Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge. I wanted to challenge myself to make something different, so I started up my cricut and cut out some swirls from my "Joys of the Season" cartridge. The DSP is Basic Grey, I picked it up while out shopping last weekend. Just bought one sheet of it. I loved the grey flowers and burnt orange vine. The stamp is by Martha Stewart. I was in Michaels and found this stamp in the clearance section for $5.99! The best part is, it came with TWO bird stamps!! I used my copics to colour the bird. At first I had wanted to pop the bird up on dimensionals but it seemed to be too much for the card, so I left the bird flat. I squished up some of the flowers from my Boho Blossoms Punch to give them some dimension and added a black punch of paper to the centre of them.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Stamping!
