A Red Wren

It's time for another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog. I really enjoyed this sketch and I hope you will too!
I love the bird in the stamp set, An Open Heart and used it as my focal point for today's card. I flipped the sketch because I wanted the bird to face the center.

Stampin' Up! An Open Heart stamp set with bird. Handmade card by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
The background of my card is a wood pattern from Farmer's Market series. It is my favorite pattern in this collection. The bird was stamped and colored with ink and an aqua painter. I didn't use much water because I wanted the colors to be dark. Then I fussy cut the bird and added it to the card front. 

The border at the bottom is Washi Tape from the Sweet Lil Things collection. It's a fun way to add some variety to a card.
