Birthday Tweetings



Greetings residents of Earth and welcome back to my wee bloglet.
Today I have a card to share featuring a whole heap of fabness from My Favorite Things.


I used 'Bold Blooms' and 'Tweet Friends' (stamps & dies) plus the 'Cheerful Cages' dies to match.


I stamped the flowers with Versacolor inks in Canary, Orange, Topaz & Paprika. I love these little inks because a) they're dead cheap, b) there are so many colours to choose from c) the colours are really rich and d) they always stamp perfectly without blotching.


I then die-cut the 2 cages from silver card, used an adhesive spray to add glue to the back of them and then adhered them, the die-cut flowers & birds to my card base. 
I coloured the birds with Mango & Mustard Promarkers.


Thanks to Seven Hills Crafts for the inspiration in my colour choice. They have a challenge going on until the 25th October to make something using products that they sell in their shop with at least 3 colours from one of the options below.


I've gone for the middle option. 


A few sequins and a white, heat embossed sentiment from the 'Tweet Friends' set... et voila! 
I really enjoyed making this card.

Oh wow, love love love the way you used the color scheme. And the clean and simple design, with the large amount of white space, just speaks to my CAS-loving soul. Thanks so much for playing in our Seven Hills Crafts challenge this month – I hope we'll seen you again with your creations next month!
