Language of Friendship CASE

The newest challenge from Time Out Challenges #79 is a CASE challenge.  I thought the birdhouses hanging from the tree with the sentiment that said "Happy New Home" was adorable.  It reminded me that I had the Language of Friendship stamp set and the corresponding punch.  I stamped the branch on Kraft and Sweet Leaf cardstock, punched them out, cut off the leaves and glued them on the Kraft branch.  I used my Cloudy Day embossing folder on the background card stock and decided to break out my new distressing ink to give the clouds a blue tinge.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Language of Friendship - Stampin' Up!
Ink:  Rich Cocoa - Memento, Desert Sand and Garden Green - Close to My Heart, Tumbled Glass Distress Ink - Ranger
Cardstock:  Kraft - Stampin Up!, Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue- Close to My Heart
Cloudy Day embossing folder and bird punch - Stampin' Up!
