A No No Bird Challenge Card

Hi Everyone,
I think I am recuperated from the busy weekend and ready to get back to work. I had to catalog all my new unmounted stamps and put them in binders. And, my Stampin' Up order came last night! Woohoo! I am as happy as a bunny in a clover field! I have a challenge card for you today. Over at Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog they are having a NO NO challenge. This weeks theme is NOT to use brads or eyelets. I found this easy enough. Now, if it had been not to use a bird, I may have had some difficulties. (Don't forget to stop over at Stamping Vacation and become a follower, and mention my name in the comments.) I used my trusty Stampin' Up bird punch for this card. I started with some shell pink CS. I punched the bird from DP. I used a Stampin' up flower stamp and stamped on white CS, colored, cut out and attached to a piece of torn Pink paper. Added the bird and a square of torn DP. Before attaching to the card, I sprayed with Brown Smooch and Pink Shimmer Mist. When dry, it was attached to the card.
