The Bird

Ok before I start this post has nothing to do with 'the bird'. It is about a CAS card I did for Cupcake Inspirations and The Paper Players. I just did it because it was funny and attention-grabbing. So did it work?
Anyhow!?

Hello All,
I am writing to throw my hat into The Paper Players and Cupcake Inspirations. Narrowing down a bird image is like narrowing down a flower image. Way too much to choose from the images I have acquired over the years. So I used a die cut and a paisley stamp. Here is my card for today, enjoy!


A simple Tim Holtz bird die cut from dark pink paper.
The branches, also from Tim Holtz, is die cut from dark green DP.
The cupcake challenge used a very pretty color combo like the one you see here. For the background, I lightly sponged over a Stamplorations stencil in the place where the bird should be highlighted. 


The only detail is a stamped paisley to the wings and tail.

Challenges Entered:
The Paper Players: PP398- Birds(CAS)
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge: CIC448- Color Challenge



Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.
