The little birdie says Hello!

I had so much fun with this card!
 I used the Freshly Made sketch as my launching pad.  I felt the sky was really the limit with this great sketch.  I started with one of my embossing folders, the bubble background. I made sure to not emboss the entire front of the card.  This embossed piece was then accented with a spray of two different colors of ink. 
 My main focal piece is a little birdie digital image from A Day for Daisies.  After I printed it out, I added some real simple coloring. The little dots were added with a stencil.  The doily looking piece is a Martha Stewart anywhere punch. I punched it once and then cut that out. I added it to my card, going "off the page".  That makes it fit the CAS-UAL Friday challenge.  The word "hello" is a Paper Smooches die cut.
Here is the Freshly Made sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
