MMTPT160, Blue Bird!


Hello, this is my card for this weeks Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT160! We were to bring birds, hearts & ribbon...I didn't realize til after it was done that it was blue ribbon...oh well, at least the bird is blue! lol

The Destination Station this week is to Barbara a friend of a fellow Teapotter's Mother who is facing another round of ovarian cancer.

I decided I wanted to use my 2-step bird punch and make a Blue Jay so I did a search in the Gallery at SCS and found this awesome post by AnnetteMac! So I did my best to case her blue jay!

The card base is blushing bride, with a layer of white embossed with the love language EF. The bird was punched out of white and coloured with copics. The beak & eye are black cs.

The branches are wild wasabi also made with the 2-step bird punch, and the flowers were made with the 3 flower punch. I first put liquid pearl in the center of the flowers, bu I can never get the peeks to go down, so I sprinkled on some dazzling diamonds glitter.

Have a Great Day!
Laurie
