Happy Birthday Singing Bird

I love PopDots so was delighted when I learned that this week's challenge at My Craft Spot is "Make It Pop".  We are encouraging you to use dimensionals on your project.


I have a quick and simple project to showcase today.  I've got a bit of an overlap of responsibilities until the end of the month so have very little (if any!) crafting time.  Life is good though, and I'm enjoying every minute of it.  I'll actually be taking May and June off to finish up my thesis project and am looking forward to taking some "mental health" crafting and blogging breaks too!



The sweet little bird on my card is from Campin' Critters.   I did a little bit of faux stitching and doodling and added some fun googly eyes.  I also used PopDots to add some dimension to my card.  The grass was punched with an EK Success border punch.


I used a little sentiment and tag from the My Craft Spot Tiny Tags stamp set.  The faux stitching on the tag is a stamp from the set too!  (This set is FULL of fabulous sentiments for all sorts of occasions.  The small size makes them perfect for adding a fun extra detail on any project.)  I adhered the tiny tag to a funky blue pop tab and finished things off with some orange divine baker's twine from My Craft Spot

Please head over to My Craft Spot to check out the rest of the "Make It Pop" projects created by the design team - and don't forget to link up your own for your chance to win this week's prize!

Very cute Kate! I love your cheerful singing bird. I haven't used that cart in a while-may have to dust that off, lol!
I like the color combo and you cute little tag. I just purchased that set and I think thats one of my favorites of Kimberly's. Have a great day my friend!
