Red Bird Sings Hi!

 

"No matter what yesterday was like, birds always start the new day with a song."

The beginning of a New Year, a New Day begins with making a card for the Fusion challenge shown below.  I decided to combine the sketch with some inspiration from the photo in my creation.  As you can see I have selected the red bird, colors, stripes and sprigs of greenery from the photo.  I used a leaf stamp to give a wing to the bird  and another cut out leaf for the sentiment.
Supplies: Gina K Designs Stippled Nature stamps, Memento Lady Bug, Rhubarb Stalk, and Cottage Ivy inks, White, and Green CS, Striped Paper, Spellbinder Oval Dies, Impression Obsession Die for Pine Boughs, Darice EF Pine Branch


Challenges:
Fusion Card Challenge: Season Greetings-used both sketch and photo
Stamp TV: Mix It Up Monday Challenge Emboss is Boss
The ABC Challenge: Y is for Your choice (Anything goes)
Mod Squad Challenge: Anything goes with at least One Die Cut-
         used 2 oval dies and the branch die

Have a great day and a great year! I love reading your comments. Theresa
