Rainbow Birds

This card uses two preloved dies I purchased ages ago and, shamefully, have never used them until today. The tiny birds are perfect to make good use of tiny snippets of card.

I placed the card blank into my MISTI and stamped the sentiment in the lower corner.  I die cut the branch from dark brown card and attached it so it overhung the edge of the card and then snipped the end.  I die cut the birds from snippets of rainbow coloured card and attached them along the branch.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" tent fold warm white hammer card blank
     Memory Box 'Woodland Branch' and 'Resting Birds' dies
     Clearly Besotted 'Fancy Saying' stamps
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Snippets of dark brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet textured card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Made in Minutes     
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - November Challenge
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 366
