I made this card for two challenges - the Featured Stamper Challenge and the Hope You Can Cling To challenge today at Splitcoaststampers. The Featured Stamper is Lynn Put, aka justbehappy - HERE is the card I chose from her fabulous gallery for inspiration.
Tenia's HYCCT challenge today is to make a musical card with pink on it - I've been into this deep coral pink lately and though you might not find an actual bird, other than a flamingo, this color, I've taken artistic license! I used a bird image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Under His Wings and a sentiment from the set Poppies and Greetings.
I masked the bird and sponged around it for a background - the plan was to put a wide black and white plaid bow on this, but when I tried it, the whole thing looked too cluttered, and lace along the musical strip seemed a good compromise!
