StampinB & Speedy's Friends - Bird's Home



I'm hostess this week for the StampinB Design Team, Challenge #74, and asked that everyone use a charm on their card. There can be no excuses to not join in as this is just so easy.
Summer is winding down (unfortunately) and I wanted to use my pretty birdhouse with all the vines growing up...a sight we won't see much longer.
Hope you'll join us...and be sure to use that charm. We are located here.

My card also goes to the Speedy's Friends challenge #18 to make a Friendship card. The challenge can be found here..

Technique: Watercoloring with a brush

please forgive the following cut and paste of my comment on SCS, but I think it so clearly states how I feel about your fabulous card....

first.....even before the design, the COLORS totally captured me...wow...what a first impression they make....tranquil and yet with a great balance of light/dark.......love how you used that border...very dramatic and yet clean.....and the image had a tranquility all its own...beautiful work, Brenda
