Happy Bird-day!

When I got up this morning, I had every intention of sitting down, quickly blog hopping then breakfast. That all fell by the wayside when I saw Kristina's colour challenge for this week! The colours are gorgeous, so of course I was tempted to pull the colours from my stash "just to have a look". You guessed it...as I type blogs are still uncommented and my tummy is grumbling for breakfast!
As soon as I saw the inspiration piece I thought of this set from Inkadinkado I picked up a couple of weekends ago - it was still uninked! The horror!
Apologies for the chocolate looking burgundy, I couldn't get it to come right without washing out all the other colours. Had to use my new Threading Water punch - been hanging out for this baby for awhile now. The white Taffeta is new too, my taffeta collection is sadly lacking...need to get onto that!

Used lots of dimensionals on this one, the bird is the third popped up layer. This is going to my brother's girlfriend (my "hopefully one day sister-in-law") for her birthday tomorrow so fortunately I can protect all those layers in a box with her present! I've used Diamond stickles on this one too, on the flower centers, the swirls on the bird and the word "wishes". Love that hint of sparkle!

Thought I'd show you a quick shot of the inside (because I actually finished it off as I made the card for once!) I always keep the inside of the card pretty simple - I think the gorgeous sentiment from Verve does all the work for me!

Happy Stamping!

I can see why you stopped everything to do this challenge. The colors are gorgeous, and so is your card. Love the way you did the different colors on the trail of flowers. Think anyone would mind if I played hooky from Verve and stamped the afternoon away? I feel the need to go pull these colors out - just to look! ;) LOL
