Sweet Stampin...#3... Feathered Friends

WOW, It's already week 3 over at Sweet Stampin Challenge blog :)
It's the first Saturday of the month so that means a new prize is on offer to all of you who take part in our challenges throughout the month of December, and remember if you use any SU products you can enter the prize draw twice! :)

To find out who has won last months Simply Scrappin kit 'Sunny Day' please pop over to the blog to find out!

Here is my card for this weeks challenge which is entitled 'feathered friends'...

I used a kraft cardstock base, layered it with 'Tea Party' DSP, the green piece was punched with the eyelet border punch at the bottom to create interest.
The bird was made using elements from one of SU's On Board collections of chipboard pieces, these are from the 'So Tweet' set. You get over 80 chipboard elements in this set for just £11.75 which is a great buy! You can order a set of these for yourself from my good friend Emma.
My bird's body was inked with a mix of SU 'more mustard' and 'close to cocoa', the legs were inked with 'summer sun' and the beak with 'pumpkin pie'.
I glued the reverse side of that green DSP shown onto the wing and tail feathers.
The felt flowers are from the 'flower fusion' Accents & Elements range, the colours being old olive and pumpkin pie, you can also get these flowers in rose red colour too.
The sentiment is hand written.

OK, now it's your turn! ;) lets see your feather inspired creations!!

Have a great weekend everyone xx
