Crazy Bird (CIC249)

Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry

Doodle Pantry is generously offering THREE images as our fabulous prize to our randomly drawn winner! 

Thank you for sponsoring this challenge!

Here is this week's inspiration cupcake.
Our challenge is BIRDS.  

Here's my take...

Sentiment or no? I really like it both ways so I guess it shouldn't matter; I just wondered what you thought. :)

This is the first time that I have actually been able to execute the 'Spotlight" technique in a way that I really like. I am loving how this came out and the bird just popping right off the card.

My card base is Stampin' Up Real Read. I also used Basic Black and White. The ovals were are cut (or traced and cut) from my Nestabilities dies.

On the inside, I used another sentiment from Doodle Pantry that came with this set and matted it on the basic black. I might write with a white pen just to make my words stand out even though I think you will be able to see black ink just fine.

Please come join us!!

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
