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!

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!
And the lovely kitty .... eheheh.... many attention to him, or a birdie will disappear! ;)

Such a beautiful little scene Kitty. Gorgeous cloud formation and I love the pussy and little birdies.

Becca Cruger said...

Either the cat wants to fly, or he's thinking about his next snack. ;) It's amazing what you can do with die cuts! This is such a quaint little scene!

I've been looking for a picket fence and that one is just the perfect size! Love your card and the little kitty says it all - just hoping one of those birds happens to come close enough. Fabulous scene and card.

Kittie said...

This is absolutely adorable. I love all your flying birds and know your kitty is fit to be tied not being able to catch one. 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.
