Classy Cards A Little Birdie

Hi Friends!  Today I'm sharing a paper pieced card I made inspired by the current  Classy Cards 'n Such challenge "An Apple a Day".

I began by cutting a piece of the Enchanted Garden Paper.  This paper is just so lovely I tend to hoard it but the pinks and greens were perfect for this challenge and needed to come out to play.  I cut the pink paper using scalloped rectangle dies from my stash and backed it with a piece of light blue card stock to mimic a blue sky.

I cut the main die which is also from my stash and colored it with Distress Ink.  I then cut the die again using a green patterned paper from the Enchanted Garden Stack.  I cut out the leaves individually and glued them on top of the original die cut.  

I sprayed the bird wings with Pearl Glimmer Mist before adhering them to the birds so they have a little sparkle.  Last I thought the tree needed a little extra pizzaz so I turned it into an apple tree by adding apples from the Impression Obsession Bushel of Apples die and dew drops for a little more dimension and interest.  

Thanks for visting and make sure to check out this week's challenge for a chance to win a great prize!
