a Birds & Blooms "Hello There"

I'm way behind on updates here! I wanted to share this card I made with the new PTI Anniversary set,  Birds & Blooms. This is the special set that can only be purchased with rewards points, but don't worry - you have until February of 2014 to accumulate the needed points and purchase it!

After playing around with it some, I found that the best way to do the wreath was to use the individual "single" stamps to fill in the flowers, rather than the "grouped" stamps, which I could never quite get lined up to my satisfaction. But the wreath is SO pretty with the ability to incorporate several different colors! My color scheme here is New Leaf, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores and Raspberry Fizz.

I added a bird from Tweet Talk, colored with Copic markers and popped up in the middle of the wreath. The sentiment is from Framed Out #2. I used Spellbinders dies for the circle and border, and popped it all up on the card base.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed Easter!

This is so pretty and a great way to use that wreath stamp and that adorable little bird. I love your choice of patterned paper too, really makes for a fun and festive card.
