Tweet Chirp

Well good morning bloggers it's been way too long since I've posted anything on my blog I hardly know how to post anymore. But today I decided was a good day to start again . I have been making lots of cards but not getting the time to sit and post . Over the weekend I was browsing through some of my Sizzix dies and came across this Bird with Leaves and Flowers die so decided to make a card with it . The weather has been so cold and so much snow around thought this might cheer everyone up a bit . I stamped a flourish image from Fancy Pants Pollen Dust set ( another older set of stamps ) in opposite corners to show through the Mixed Media die Christmas on my card base, stamped and embossed another flourish diagonally in the center of my blue layer . The bird cage was cut with grey core cardstock and distressed to show the white core. I sponged some mustard seed DI and Tumbled Glass DI on white c/s ,stamped script and then cut out my bird . The music is MB and the sentiment is by Dyan Reaverey which I cut apart . To finished off I added black gems and MS lace border to the cage as well as a tiny key and ribbon .

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Scrap Land #60 Add texture

Dies R Us #67 Think spring

Word Wed ATG 

Allsorts Challenge 403 ATG

Beautiful card Marilyn! I love the blue background with the harlequin design cut out in the corners, such a lovely way to create interest. Your bird is beautiful with the blended colours and the script design! A stunning layout and a wonderful card for spring (which is apparently upon us here, about three months too early!!!). sending hugs :)
