Stampin' B's Challenge: Birds

Thursday means it's time for a new challenge from the Stampin' B's DT! This week Brenda, aka Benzi on SCS, is our hostess. Being the bird lover that she is, Brenda is challenging us to use birds on our projects. Let's meet my happy little card for today:
That cute little bird stamp comes from the {ippity} set Just Wanted to Say, and the sweet bird charm is from Mark's Finest Papers.

I am playing in a ton of challenges with this card, so let's get cracking on that list.
I hope you've been inspired to play along with the Stampin' B's!! If you do make a card, post it on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my little slice of bliss for today!

Talk about eye-candy! You've got some yourself, here! I spotted this at CR84FN, and had to pop over and see what's going on. It's so cute that Benzi picked birds. :) Love your little bird charm and stamp. THe details are great: pearls, satin ribbon, charms, button, punchez...and yet, it is not a 'busy' card at all. Keeping your color palette the way you did makes it peaceful. Beautiful job, and way to rack up the challenge number!
