Happy Bird Day

Well its time for another challenge from the Just Add Ink Design team. This week we have a colour challenge.

I have been using my time lately to do up some Scrapbook Layouts for all my photos that need to be put into albums, but this week I thought I would get back in to making some cards, due to the fact that I will be starting classes again next week. Yay the time has been good for catching up but I need to get back into classes. So This is the card I came up with.

I thought I would re-visit some of the stamp sets I don't use very often this time. So with the stamp set Always in my hand I set out to make my card. I have used all the colours in the challenge, plus I used the scallop trim border punch and weaved my elegant eggplant ribbon through it. To make the faux grass I used the scallop edge punch, punched it out once and then went back through to get the fluffy fraid look. I have used dimensions to make the tag at the top and bird stand out a little. The saying comes from the Picture This stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by
