Little Birds in a Row

This afternoon while Natalie was taking a snooze, I got to make a card for this week's Color Inspiration Challenge on Kristina Werner's blog! I love participating in her challenges! Here is what she challenged us with this time:



and, here is the card I made!



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Cheep Talk set, A Little Birthday Cheer set, Owl Together set
Ink: Baja Breeze, More Mustard, So Saffron Classic Inks; Versamark
Paper: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, More Mustard, Whisper White cardstock; Sahara Sand textured cardstock; Walk in the Park DSP
Accessories: Kraft taffeta ribbon, Paper Piercer and mat, Dimensionals, Signo White gel pen

I love these little birdies and have wanted to make a card with them all lined up like this since I got it back in January! I added a little hat on one because I wanted it to be a birthday card for my cousin Shirlie... she's having her 18th birthday tomorrow!! I added some faux stitching to each of my background panels and some Kraft colored taffeta ribbon as a little wire for the birds to sit on. The hardest part was the hand cutting!

Funny, Deb of Papertree Designs Blog commented today and said I should submit the flip flop card I made last week... it really would have worked! These must be some hot colors! Hee! If I hadn't had the afternoon to stamp, I probably would have!

Well, I better go... I've been multi tasking, watching American Idol and Dancing with the Stars while typing this up. I can't wait to see who wins both shows!! It seems like the competition is pretty close this year and that makes it a little more exciting to watch!

Hope you all have a great day tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!

How perfectly adorable!! You have managed to make such a unique card- I barely recognized that it is SUO. The birds "sitting" on the ribbon, the rounded corners on the white piece, the panels and colors- everything! LOVE IT!
