A Challenge Card


This is another of the cards I made using Sweet Stamp's Bird on a Flowering Branch. I picked this up at the Novi Show and as soon as I saw it I had to have it. I think this image is so lovely (I was going to say sweet but I thought better of that). I colored it with Copics and cut it out and embossed it with Nestabilities Label 4. I sponged some Memento Summer Sky ( I ran out of compressed air for my air brush system) around the edge.
The DP is from Memory Box Enchanted. I think it is too pretty to cover it up so I decided to keep this one simple.
I found out that it would fit the ABC challenge which is B is for Blue, 80% of the card must be blue and I think this one qualifies. Then I realized that since I had added some butterflies, using my Martha Stewart punch and adding a little stickles, it would also work for the Flutterby Wednseday challenge.
All in all I like how it turned out, what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by.
