A Happy Little Bird card and fun news!

Hello stamping friends!  I have been so pre-occupied with some stresses in my daily life that I have not made a card in nearly two weeks!  Don't worry, nothing dire is going on, just a combination of a few things pulling me in many directions and using up my energy.  I am glad to be back on the blog today!  So thanks for stopping by!

Before I get to my new card, I got some fun news today!  Our Daily Bread Designs featured my card on their blog today as the Customer Card of the Day!  Oh my goodness, I was really surprised and so appreciative of the kind words they posted about my cards.  Thank you so much!  

Here is a link to my original post for this card if you want the details on supplies and more photos.

I made today's card for a couple challenges - a sketch and a photo inspiration.  

(Click on photos for details.)

The peachy panel is one of my waxed paper resist panels I made a few weeks ago.  Here is another card with a different one of those panels.  The bird and leaves were stamped with pigment ink and die cut. I used a border embossing folder to create a firm foundation for that bird to sit! 

Supplies: Gina K Designs Birthday Blessings stamp set, Avery Elle Strawberry and Celery ink, Enamel accents (for the eye), gems from my stash, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Distress Ink Tattered Rose.

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
