Tweet Birdday

Happy Friday everyone! Before I get to my card today, I want to direct you to Melissa McCarthy's blog to see her final project as guest designer for Squigglefly. I can't thank Mel enough for working her creative magic with Squigglefly's digis. She really does create magic with her art. Thank you Mel!!

Here's my card

(click to enlarge)

I used one of the images from the Bird Watching set that Jane Beljo drew. I colored it with copic markers and chalked the sky and used some of the fun grass from Meyer Imports. It's cut out with a square nestabilities die and then matted with the scalloped square.

The designer paper is from Stampin Up as is the sentiment stamped at the bottom. The designer paper and a layer of white card stock is punched with the EK Success border punch. This image (well, really all of the images in this set) would be really nice for thank you cards too. New images at Squigglefly tomorrow!

Enjoy your day, and thanks for stopping by!

You are so right about having Mel as GD this month! She has a special gift that just blows me away! This has truly been an inspirational month! :) Thanks Mel!

Holly, today's card is so bright and cheery with the image you chose and the colors. Oh your coloring never ceases to amaze me! I can't imagine it being any different after you take the class...maybe just a new, cool technique! You already show perfection at its best! ;) I love this card's design...especially the scallops on the DP and having the sentiment mimic the motion of the scallops! Too cool! :)

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend! It's sure to be another busy one for me! UGHHH! Working on the SR projects, parties, and trips are about to get the best of me! Gosh, all we did back in my day was GRADUATE! :)

Smashing card. I love the primary colours you have used. I hope you have a great week-end at the copic event, and I can't wait to see your new found skills in action over the coming weeks.
