Springtime Sparrows sweet peek

Hello! It's Monika here today, with a sweet peek card using Springtime Sparrows clear stamp set that will be released TOMORROW! Did you see Diane's beautiful calendar using the same set? Wonderful images with lots of possibilities!

The main image fits in a circle perfectly, so I decided to make a circle card, using Scallop Circle and Circle dies from Spellbinders.

I didn't spend a lot of time on coloring, but I did some fussy cutting to give a 'special touch' to my card. The cut out blooms and sparrow were then adhered with sticky tape and I just curled the edges with my fingers. The greeting came from Long Stem Silhouettes clear stamp set.

I finished the inside of my card, by stamping the same image with the same color as the card stock so it's very subtle.

The decorative washi tape, pearls, and sequins were the perfect embellishments. I really didn't need much because the main image is pretty enough and I wanted that to be the focal point. 

Thanks for stopping by,
Monika
