Freehand Thank you Card

I've been loving all the birds and branches stamps I see everywhere, but haven't invested in some. I really wanted to make a card using My Cute Card's You're Tweet set, but I will have to wait three more weeks until I get to the US to order some of their really adorable stamps. In the meantime, I decided to freehand draw the branch and my version of the bird for this card. The color inspiration is from Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #6:

I first drew my sketch of the branch and bird on the other side, then cut. This card used a lot of scraps, StampTV's Friday Potluck challenge this week. I paper pierced the bottom just for added flair.

Stamps: Curly Label punch set and Trendy Trees by SU
Ink: Basic Brown
Papers: Cameo Coral, Basic Brown, Friends and Flowers SSK by SU, Urban Prairie by Basic Grey
Flowers by Making Memories
