Happy Bird-day to You!


Hello, I am back again with another card using these darling birds from MFT- Tweet Hello. I so enjoyed playing with these yesterday, that I got up early this morning to finish card number two. I used the MFT cloud stencil and the sunray stencil to make my sky. Then I heat embossed some leaves from Stampendous and sponged them with Broken China (my favorite color)-Oxide Ink and fussy cut them out. Next, I remembered that I had a fun branch from SU that I thought would work nicely with the sketch.  I hope it’s okay that I took the liberties of combining the sentiment element on the sketch as both my branch and sentiment. The background paper and navy cardstock are both SU.  Again the cute birds are colored with Prismas and popped up for dimension.  My starting point for my card was designed around the sketch at The Paper Players. Then I went searching for the color inspiration and had to go no further than The Color Throwdown.

I loveeeeeee color challenges! Don’t you?  I may start one someday! Who Knows!!

I hope however you are choosing to spend the day you are enjoying it! Nanc’
