St. Patrick's Bird Crazy Card

Hello everyone! I have a few St. Patrick's Day projects to bring you this week, and I thought I would start with a card that I made for Ranger Ink's CHA Booth this year, using lots of Stickles, and Tim Holtz goodies. 
The base piece of Specialty Stamping Paper was misted with Lucky Clover Distress Spray Stain.
17 was stamping in a few colors of Distress Paint in green tones.
Several shamrocks were punched from Tim's Clover Punch from Sizzix, and then every green Stickles I own was slathered on each shamrock.
The cutie pututie bird was stamped on Specialty Stamping Paper, colored with Distress Inks, and die cut. I seriously could make birds all day...each with a name. This guy's name is Tiny!
The sentiment was perfect! I stitched around the base, and then mounted it on Kraft Core that was dry embossed with the Sparkles Texture Fade, sanded, and adorned with a little more Stickles. And then, I added even more Stickles to the rest of the card. There is no such thing as too much Stickles!!!

I'll be back again tomorrow with another project. Until then Cheers!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
