I first tore the Chocolate Chip DSP to resemble a small mound or hill and adhered it to the right bottom corner on the Whisper White Card Stock measuring 7″ x 2-1/4″. Using Green Galore I stamped one bird on Whisper White, The other bird I stamped in Tempting Turquoise. The eggs were stamped in Pixie Pink and the flowers in Orchid Opulence and the leaves in Green Galore. Then I cut out all images. Next I stamped on the Whisper White 7″ x 2-1/4″ piece the branch in Chocolate Chip and added the leaves in Green Galore. The umbrella is stamped in Tempting Turquoise. I punched out two sets of the photo corners in Yo-Yo Yellow. I assembled all the pieces as shown above, adhering the birds with dimensionals.
