Burlap Birdie

This cute little birdie card was made for Our Creative Corner: How Green is Your Spring?  The challenge was to make a papercraft using green as a main color.  I purchased this sweet table runner from Hobby Lobby this spring, and it had me brimming with inspiration.  This challenge was perfect for this project!  Here's a pic of my inspiration piece....
I love how the wing of the bird is a leaf.  I used my Build A Blossom stamp set and punched a leaf/wing with the Build A Blossom punch.
Here's a closer look at the card.
Stamps: Build A Blossom
Paper: Soft Suede, Pear Pizzaz, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Old Olive
Ink: Old Olive, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight (sponging)
Accessories: Bird Builder punch, Build a Blossom punch, Little Leaves die, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, In Color buttons, twine, half pearls, Pear Pizzaz polly stitched ribbon, Square Lattice EF, Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Label 3 die from Nestabilities
Thanks for taking a peek!
