Classy Cards N Such challenge this week. The challenge is to pick a pattern of stripes, dots, chevrons or use all three. I chose striped paper from a Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper pad. I thought this stamp
"Blossom Birds" by Penny Johnson was really cute so I colored it and used a die to cut it out. I used the same die set to cut my pretty frame for the birds. The filigree bow is a Sue Wilson Finishing Touches - Filigree 3D Itty Bitty bow die. It really comes in handy when you do not have the right shade of ribbon, it is so easy just to cut one from the paper you are using. A perfect match every time. I finished my card by using Silver Rhinestones.
I hope you enjoyed my little blue birds today. Any of the products in bold print can be found in the Classy Cards N Such Store. Use the code Shirley-10 for a 10 % discount.
