Bold and Bright

Good morning everyone!!! I had a free afternoon yesterday so I stamped away in the craft room....don't ya just love days like that!!!! I made this for the I Spy #19 sketch challenge....I had  these scrap papers on my counter so I decided to put them all together for this bright thank you card for a friend. This is also for the Pixie Dust challenge to use birds and for the Stamp and Create challenge to use bold and bright colors.

I used an A Muse set called Life is a Song...the birds were stamped in real red and the birdcage in night of navy. A Cherry Lynn die was used for the red vine and a MFT's Die-namics die was used for the trim piece.  The embossed vanilla background, button and Baker's Twine from the Twinery finishes it off.

I'm off to the church to work on a few craft projects for our Christmas in July sale...I hope to have some pictures in a few days....we are making some awesome stuff!!!!!

Thanks for visiting....have a great day!!!!!

another fab card, Joan, I'm loving the birdcage and bird images you use. The way you made the diecut leaves cling to the circle is so nice. Have a great weekend, petal. CoB
