City Crafter's Challenge #64

When I saw the challenge at the City Crafter challenge this week, I had to play - it's called "Bird's of a Feather", to make something using birds or birdcages.  Between the DT's examples and the entries, there's lots and lots of prettiness there!  Here's my entry:


supplies: aqua card base, dps from Memory Box "minuet" and DCWV "Garden Party", stamps: Stampin'Up "Touch of Nature" (bird), Great Impressions E580 (nest), Hero Arts CL129 Anytime Messages, paper lace, thin pale green silk ribbon,  Prima flower, raffia

I love the Memory Box "minuet" paper so much; didn't want to cover up any more than I had to, so I added just the bird and nest and the sentiment to that panel.

You are right; these papers are gorgeous.
And you can add only a bird, a nest and a sentiment. But you picked just the right items and they are just as gorgeous as these papers.
Fabulous Lin; you have a special talent to mix and match everything so perfect! Love it!
