Bird on Cup - Thank You

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm sharing another bird-themed card and this time the bird has landed on a floral coffee cup.  The butterflies like it too!


This beautiful cup image is a freebie from STAMPlorations - Coffee Bloom Prints (thank you, Shery!).  I coloured it with markers and fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape. I stencilled sun rays on the background.with Distress Oxide and die-cut with a stitched rectangle. I adhered a die-cut bird and punched butterflies and then stamped a sentiment. I mounted the rectangle on a grey panel and then a yellow card base.

Dies: STAMPlorations For the Birds - CUTplorations, Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles
Digital stamp: STAMPlorations Coffee Bloom Prints
Clear stamp: STAMPlorations Frames and Flowers (sentiment)
Stencil:  MFT Sunrise Radiating Rays Mixable Stencil
Punches:  Butterflies (Recollections)
Ink: Distress Oxide (Scattered Straw), Versafine Onyx Black
