Hey Chickadee


I used a soft suede textured cardstock base and some designer paper by Cosmo Cricket, coordinating ribbon, and silver fancy embossed brads. I like to add lots of piercing on all of the edges some sponged on shading to all of the image and sentiment panels. Chickadee from the A Little Birdie Told Me set by Firecracker Designs By Pamela was colored in Copic markers. The card fold is the easel style and stands up and also lays flat for easy mailing.
