I started with a Soft Sky panel and stamped the Woodgrain Background stamp in Sahara Sand. I didn't know quite how I was going to get the branch and the bird on the card, so I just stamped them onto a scrap of Very Vanilla--and they turned out so wonderfully--the bird was placed exactly where I wanted it and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to recreate that. So I decided to go with it. I tore a corner off the Woodgrain panel and adhered it over the Very Vanilla piece.
I adhered the main piece onto a Sahara Sand panel and then onto a Soft Sky card base. I stamped the sentiment in Rose Red onto another Very Vanilla scrap and then punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. I love it when a design comes together by accident!
