CCCB # 64 "Birds of a feather"

Hi!

How are you?
Summer is back here and the last few days we had lovely weather.
The days go by in the blink of an eye and I LOVE this season :)

I have quite a few challenges on my to-do list and this weeks' challenge at the City Crafter Challenge Blog
it's all about birds and birdcages.
And I stumbled upon an image on the internet ( Graphics Fairy) that took my breath away.
A bird with blue feathers; getting the picture already? :)




I choose papers with a classic and a bit of an old look.
These are papers from Prima "Botanical"". And a few buttons from my stash. A bit of twine and a lovely little stamp of the Victorian Frippery set of Waltzingmouse stamps. I will never ever get tired of that set; it's definitely my favorite:




A small handmade pin (made by me) and a flower from Magnolia (I added a pearl in the center). And a little bow made of cream ribbon with white polka dots. They go so well well with my birdie....




I placed that small stamp in three corners and in the 4th corner I added the sentiment; which is also from Waltzingmouse stamps ( Fancy Phrases)
A bit of distress ink and to be honest; I love the result.I am so happy how this card turned out!
Well here it is:




Time to hop over to your blogs :)
Till soon; have a lovely day/evening!
Stella

Ach wat een schatje... Dus jij bent ook aan het 'vogelen' geweest ;-) Ik heb zojuist ook een plaatje uitgezocht voor een vriend van ons, hij is nl. nogal een vogelaar of hoe heet zo iemand ;-) Ook weer helemaal in jouw kleuren hè, blauw past gewoon bij jou! Ik ga je zo mailen ;-)

Well Stella this card might be my new favourite that you've made. It's funny because every Tuesday I check City Crafter's new challenge theme and think "ohhh I can't wait to see what Stella comes up with for this one!"
This card is perfection. The embellishments and paper draws the eye in a slow, soothing circular motion until they settle on the image.
Sorry to write so much here - I just really love this card!!
Andrea said…

Well, I don't blame you at all for being happy with this card, Stella! I think it's just gorgeous. Love that bird image. The Graphics Fairy has the most fabulous images ever. :) Your papers are so, so pretty, and I love the stamped flourish in each corner. Love the balance of the flower and the buttons, too. Really lovely.
