Chickadees for Fall

Happy autumn everyone!  It's Jeanne sharing today and I am so happy fall is here -it's my favorite season.  To celebrate I made a card with an autumn feel.
These chickadees are part of the new release and come with both stamp and die.  To make the card, I first colored the birds with Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating die.  Next I cut an A2 sized panel out of the gingham paper along with a 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch strip of dark red card stock.  I used the largest Nested Wacky Stitched Rectangle die to cut the white panel.
Then I stamped my sentiment in dark brown on the stitched panel.  I love how this sentiment goes with the songbirds!
I used several shades of green and two shades of brown to cut the foliage from the Pine Spray die.
Next, I adhered the panels down, offsetting the stitched panel so that I would have room on the left for the large sprays.  I love asymmetry in design and think this works well here.
I used several of the foliage leaves that I cut but not all.  After I had decided on placement, I glued them in place and used foam dots to adhere the birds.
