Spring Song in the Grass

I am loving birds. They are so much fun to watch on the birdfeeder. It is interesting to watch the big ones that cannot get their beak in the hole meant for the goldfinch, still chase the goldfinch away. In the end the goldfinch win.

Here is a card I did last night. It uses two different stamp sets -- Spring Song (bird) and Inspired by Nature (grasses). I stamped the grasses with VersaMark and Stazon's green. I then embossed with green embossing powder. I used the slot punch to make cattails on the grass. I then punched a hole in the grass with SU's wide oval punch and placed a watercolored bird from Spring Song stamp set behind it.

After I distressed, inked, and sponged the edges, added layers, ribbon, eyelet, and clip, it was done.

The inside says:
Hope is the thing
with feathers ---
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without
the words –
Ands never stops – at all.
---Emily Dickinson
