About Birds



Today was my turn to choose the CAS266 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The color palette is Still Life Blues from design-seeds.com I love blues and browns together. You were to use at least three of the colors.



I decided not to do my CAS card with white today because I found this Bazzill Icy Mint cardstock at Jo-Ann Stores and fell in love with it. I'm using it for my card base. I did a one layer and added something I love...birds and anything to do with them. That was the dessert option this week. You could do bird, birdhouses, bird nest, eggs.....You get the idea.

Recipe:
Stamps-Our Daily Bread Designs/Nest set, Stamps by Judith/dots (added for interest)
Paper-Bazzill Icy Mint and Gumball, bird is unknown blue, brown scraps
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-Taylored Expressions/Bless your Nest die, Scor-Pal

Well, since blue is my very favorite color, I automatically love this. I'd love it in any color though since it's so cute and pretty. The little bird and his nest is adorable and love the score lines. That blue card stock.....wow!!
