Inspired by a Song

Today's card is for the new Charisma Cardz challenge where the theme is Inspired by a Song.  Mine has been inspired by Eva Cassidy's Songbird, mostly because I bought a set of bird rubber stamps some weeks ago and have been waiting for an opportunity to use them ever since!
The set is from Lost Coast and is called Three Birds, I stamped my bird onto patterned paper, cut it out and inked around the edge. I then stuck it onto some cardstock which I then also trimmed around the shape of the bird, I used foam pads to stick it onto the backing papers. I have used papers from 7 Gypsies, a sentiment from Personal Impressions, punches from Stampin Up and organza ribbon roses from MeiFlower
