Little blue birdie notecard

Sorry i've been kinda quiet here the last few days...I seem to have acquired my husbands cold and have been trying to fight it! I am still not sure who is or the cold!

I made a set of note cards using the Fun & Fast Notes set keeping them.....guess what...simple! I used the same Polka Dot background stamp inked with different colors for each card, bashful blue, Certainly Celery, and Apricot Appeal. This example shows Bashful Blue. I then cut a simple square of white and stamped the bird, teacup, and porcupine images with black Stazon, then colored them with blender pens and ink. I matted each image with it's coordinating cardstock color, and that was it! I kept these to a minimum on purpose. I wanted to just have a little collection of coordinating notecards that I can give as a gift to a friend of mine. If you wanted to, you could go one step further and actually have the cardbase Bashful Blue, and then the white polka dots could be a panel on the front, but I wanted the white inside as well, so I just kept the cardbase white. Ok, I think I'm rambling....maybe it's time for more medicine!
