Birdy Christmas Tree

Hello All,

UGH!! Monday is here but cheer up because Make My Monday has a new challenge for you! Before we get to the challenge here is my card for today, enjoy!

The birds are congregating on branches that gradually end
up in the shape of a Christmas Tree.
I really enjoy the splatters that were added to the card.

Challenge for the next two weeks:

Challenge #35
CAS Christmas

Nothing like a little research to see the true colors of a bird.
I decided to break up our birds with the a sentiment strip.
It seemed like a good way to balance the card.
The bird tree was actually a lot longer then I liked so I cut off the bottom part
of the tree and then added it to the inside of the card.
It seemed like a waste since they were already colored why not use them up.

Below: Detailed photo of the birds. I colored them by layering various colors and then blending them together to achieve the correct balance of color.

Challenges Entered:

Well that should do it for me. I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Make My Monday. It should be fun! Until then take care and happy crafting.

All the best,
