Smile For The Birdie

Half way through the month and that means it's time for a new
challenge theme at Dies R Us Challenges!

Grab our Badge!

The theme is birds and/or bees.
Well obviously you can see I went with birds.

I started out by die cutting 3 clouds using both
Impression Obsession Clouds

I then used a texture stamp and stamped all over using
Memento Dew Drop Ink London Fog.

I added scraps of paper behind the clouds, 
but you could just as easily die cut the clouds and piece them in
for a bit of a different look.

I added birds from the 
Impression Obsession Sea Birds set.

I even used the left over pieces for the inside of my card,
and adding texture to that as well.

The front of the card was finished by adding the word 'SMILE'
I cut it twice, adding the black underneath for a shadow effect.

Make sure to pop on over to the
Dies R Us challenge blog and see all the 
fun and pretty designs from the design team!!

This is such a fabulous card Diane! I love the patterned clouds paired with those pretty blue sea birds. How wonderful that you had a bird leftover to carry the design to the inside of the card. The insides of my cards are often neglected and I always love it when designs carry inside. Perfectly sweet!!

This is so creative. I love how you made the clouds from the negative and used pp behind. The sentiment is perfect with this whimsical card.
