Mix & Match the Birdies!

Isn't it great when different craft products in your stash go together, almost as though you had plannned it?
Birdhouse Tall Birs Card Tonic Studios, Spellbinders, Hunkydory
Card Recipe:
Tools: Spellbinders Labels 18 Diet Set , Tonic Studios Birds on a BranchBirdhouse DieLayering Rectangles and Layering CirclesGrand Calibur 
Paper and Card: HunkydoryStardream Pearlescent Card
Embellishments: mulberry flowersMay Arts ribbon
As you will have noticed, I do like a lot of layers on my card!  For this card, I wanted to use a Hunkydory card toppers and cardstock set that I had in my stash, as the pink/purple colours were a favourite of the card recipient. The focal topper came in the set, and although I don't have an exact shape match in my dies, I was unabashed. Spellbinders Labels 18 echoed the shape of the topper and it shows perfectly that you do not need to have an exact match to still create a harmonious arrangement on your card.
I've also mixed and matched patterned cardstock and papers with coordinating plains and pearlescents.
I carried on the theme of the card with my die cut accent - a bird house cut from the same pink stardream card as my card base, mounted onto a pre-embossed strip of Hunkydory Adorable Scorable card.  I then used sprigs from the Birds on a Branch die set to create some final accents, picking up from the embossed foliage pattern on the card stock. These tucked behind the mulberry flower and floral organza ribbon as I often think a card is not finished if it doesn't have flowers and ribbon, I get kind of twitchy if I make a card without them!

Hope you all have a great a weekend and happy crafting!
