Have a Fine Bird-Day

Hello all you crafty friends out there. Today, we have a challenge from 613 Avenue Create. This week's challenge is birds of a feather (birds, feathers, wings). The interpretation is left up to you. As always, you can choose to skip the challenge and enter your anything goes project as well. Our sponsors this week are Oak Pond Creations and Doodle Pantry. How awesome is that!


My card is brought to you today by Doodle Pantry. I'm using the image, sentiment and designer paper from the set Critter Tales. This set is free with purchase this month and you still have today and tomorrow to get in on the deal. I love this Flamingo. I chose to use the PRE-PRINTED image on white card stock. I used Cameo Coral ink from Stampin' Up! to distress the edges. I did the same thing for the sentiment. I used Spellbinder's Labels Four dies for the image and sentiment and Gold Labels Four dies for the frames behind them. I took white feathers and inked them a little with the Cameo Coral ink and secured them to the designer paper. Using pop dots, I layered the image over the feathers and the sentimental above that at an angle. I finished the card off with some new black bling crystals from Queen & Co. that I just picked up at the Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim this weekend. What a fun time that was! Here is a picture of what you will receive in the entire set.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
