Something For the Birds!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. I've been busy this week with household stuff and getting some cards done for my Layers of Color gallery as well as a workshop. Hope you've all had a good week!

We have a new challenge posted today on STAMP SOMETHING! This week our challenge is being hosted and sponsored by There She Goes Stamps. The challenge theme is Something For the Birds, make a project using bird images. Use any size, shape, color, type, style, anything you wish that has something to do with birds. If you play along, you'll have the chance to win a set of stamps donated by There She Goes Stamps! Head over to STAMP SOMETHING and check out the challenge and the For the Birds design team samples!

For my card, I used some images from the Here for You set from There She Goes. I started by stamping the flower image in Versamark and sponged on pastel chalks. Then I stamped the bird images in Baja Breeze ink.

This card uses Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, White, Baja Breeze, and Urban Garden cardstock and papers. I paper pierced the image piece and roughed up the edges with my distressing tool. The final accent was to frame the sentiment with hodgepodge and brads.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend. Happy stamping... something for the birds! :)
