Language Of Friendship Sale-a-Bration Card

Sad to say, but I've had this stamp set for a few months and it got neglected until I saw it in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  Here is a card that I cased from Michele Reynolds, one of my fellow demonstrators.  It is one of the cards that I created for my  Sale-a-Bration stamp camps.

I ran some Naturals White card stock through the Big Shot with the Designer Frames embossing folder.  Then I trimmed around the oval with my paper snips and sponged it with Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the bird and flowers with Island Indigo ink on Pool Party card stock.  After cleaning the bird stamp (an important step), I inked it up with Always Artichoke ink and stamped it onto Wild Wasabi card stock, then punched out the branch.  I stamped the flowers randomly onto Pool Party card stock with Pool Party ink and stamped the sentiment with Island Indigo ink.  The card base is Wild Wasabi.  I adhered the bird and flowers on to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I adhered the branch with Tombow, then added the pearls.
