Stamped Bird

This card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used black cardstock for the base, then trimmed some black and white damask cardstock 1/4" smaller for my next layer. I cut strips of black and white cardstock, then punched their edges with a lacy Martha Stewart border punch, I believe it is eyelet lace border punch. I tied it all with a black satin ribbon. I used a Nestabilities die for both the lacy scalloped circle and the regular circle. I stamped the white circle with a Fiskars bird stamp, that I also heat embossed. It is adhered to the card with pop-dots. The heart is from George and Basic Shapes, cut at 1 3/4." I stamped my sentiment on the heart, it is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. I finished off the card with some black pearls.
I made this for the following challenges:
