Blue Bird

This is my second post today, and my card is for two challenges.

Paper Craft Crew with this sketch,

and Stampin' Royalty  who have these colours

Here's my card

I started by colouring the edges of a white card base and a square of white card with a Suede Write Marker. I then randomly stamped a brown flower onto some blue card, before wrapping yellow ribbon around it and layering onto the base, finishing with a bow. I used a border punch along one edge of the second card and laid some more white card on top. Here I stamped the bird from one of my favourite sets without his main tail, masked his body with a Post It, and then stamped the elaborate feathers in its place. I stamped three yellow flowers which I grouped in the corner, with one on 3D pads. For the final touches I added the sentiment and gems.

Supplies :
Card = Pool Party, and White card and base FMS
Stamps = Whimsical Wings and Verve
Inks = Soft Suede, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit
Tools = Stamp-a-ma-jig  AND NO BIG SHOT!!!
Extras = Yellow ribbon and Blue gems (the closest to the challenge colours I had )

Tomorrow, I am dog sitting "Charlie" for my friend while she goes to a funeral, so I may not get chance to do any crafting till late in the day, but I will be back at my desk when I can.

Thanks for dropping by today, and Thank You for all your lovely comments
