Embellish Color Trends Challenge with Birds and a Little Extra

This is the Challenge over at Embellish Color Trends going on now. This time you needed to include birds to your project in addition to using the colors of course. I have a thing for little birds; reason why a few little bird stamps have made it into my little stash. Here is what I came up with for this challenge.

 I have had this little idea in my head, using this little birdie in this way. I am happy that this challenge made me get inky with it and put it on paper.

 This second card below has no birds, so I am not submitting this one but the color combination inspired me to make a masculine Happy Birthday card. Masculine inspiration is a little hard to come by so I had to take advantage plus I did need a masculine Happy Birthday card.  I decided to make it much like the first with just a few little differences and kept it more simple and with no fuss. I think it is perfect for my father in-law.

 I made the lines with Martha Stewart's Scoring board. I am having fun using this tool. There are so many things that you can do with it.

I miss you

  1. This is so sweet and pretty! I love them both.

  2. Um, that has to be the cutest bird ever!! Absolutely adorable card. Thanks so much for joining Embellish!

  3. Oh, what a cute card! I like the second one too, but I think the little birdie on the first one, makes it cuter! Thanks for playing along with us!
