Cute Birds

 Today I have a quick and easy card created with dies and an embossing folder.  The background was embossed with the Anna Griffin, "Juliet Damask" embossing folder.  The fence is the Cheery Lynn "Victorian Picket Fence".  It was sponged with Distress Tea Die Ink then Gesso was patted over it to give it a worn look.  The grass is the Cheery Lynn "Grass Border".  Among the blades of grass I added some of the tiny flowers from the Susan's Garden "Sunflower" die set.  These are used as the center of the sunflower but I used them as separate little flowers for this card. 

The cute birds are a die cut from an Impression Obsession die.  The top of the birds were sponged with purple ink then a black bead glued in the eye.

For me, I like the idea it is an easy one to do, yet it is very pretty.
