Bright birdie

Hi there,

we have just had a beautiful spring day here - its just so nice !! and I love seeing all the flowers in my garden. Actually the challenge Makeesha set this week was a perfect match - really bright sunny colours. Here is her colour pick

The colours just made me think of a bright sunny day, the blue sky and birds may'be cause my munchkins get me up early enough to hear them ;). So that's what I went with.

Sorry for the crooked photo but it was the only one where you could see the scoring on the bottom. Here's a straight one.

I started with a Pacific Point base and layered that with White, the bottom of whihc I scored like the panelling you see in the inspiration pic. The top half of the card I layered with some Summer Sun DSP from the Good Morning Sunshine DSP pack. The central panel is firstly some Pacific Point DSP from the same DSP pack, a white panel with a quirky little birdy stamped in Pacific Point. He has a yellow rhinestone brad for an eye, and is surrounded by branches stamped in Summer Sun. The leaves have been covered with crystal effects and glitter. The last elements are some Pacific Point ribbon where the top and bottom layers merge and of course the greeting - to match the bird.

I haven't finished the inside yet, was just too tired and tuckered the other night when I was stamping to get there.

I must admit I really like how happy and fresh this colour combo was - something I will go back to I think.

Thanks for visiting.
