Feathered Friends

Hello, everyone!  I saw a fun challenge over at Impression Obsession IO Blog and wanted to join in. The theme is Feathered Friends.  I decided to make a little scene with my Impression Obsession dies. Not surprisingly, I had to sneak a kitty onto the card, hehe.  He is watching his feathered friends very closely!


Here's a list of dies used, all from Impression Obsession:



I created the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink using a cloud template that's free from Netty's Cards (thank you!).  I sponged Mowed Lawn Distress Ink along the bottom of the sky, behind the picket fence.  I stamped the sentiment from Impression Obsession - Clear Stamp Sets - Sentiments 1 WP16 - in SU Night of Navy.  The birdhouses were cut from Doodlebug Hello Sunshine DP.  

My colour combo was inspired by the challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations:


I used two NBUS items on this card, so I'm also joining Darnell's NBUS challenge. If you haven't heard about this fun challenge, please head over to djkardkreations and read all about it! Darnell has lined up some fabulous sponsors! 


My NBUS items are the Doodlebug 6x6 paper pad and the Bird Bath die set - I used just the birds on this card. I've had both of these NBUS items for over a year.


I would also like to join these two fun challenges, for a total of five challenges entered:
Emerald Faeries Thank You 3/3
The Paper Girls Thankful/Grateful 2/3

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

  7. Fabulous sweet card, Kitty! Love your sky with these beautiful clouds and you have blended it so well with the grass zone! The birdhouses are adorable with this patterned paper, they look so pretty and cute! Fabulous embossed fence! The birdie silouettes are very cute, they give a beautiful interest to the cards, because they are all differents one by the others!!! They seems really full of life!

I'm so sorry that none of our design team came over to check out your project. Please know that I will share your comment with our whole team. Thank you for the reminder that we need to make sure we check out the challenge participants projects.
