Fresh Squeezed Stamps: Uniquely You HELLO



I am over the moon for Fresh Squeezed Stamps. 
 
Why? I am not sure. I like the quirkiness and cuteness of them. 
I also love, love 
Paper Smooches,
 Lawn Fawn,
and Alleywaystamps!!!!
I like that they don't have that many sets yet, so there are new sets to look forward to and the designs will be "fresh."
 
For this card I really wanted to showcase one bird as being "not like the others." 
So at lunch I sketched the bottom third of the card to have diagonal stripes with a scallop solid piece and add twine.  Birds to dot the top with a unique one.
I thought maybe polka dotted or something. 
When I pulled this stripey paper, the lines ran horizontal by the way, not diagonal, so I had to angle and cut the way I wanted the pattern to run...
 I liked that pattern so I stamped a bird on the pinks as I had some little heart buttons close since Valentine's Day, and it really went well together!
 
I added some WeR Memory Keepers Floss in Pink.
There you have it. 
100% stamps used Fresh Squeezed.
