Blue tit



   The theme for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge for the next fortnight is things with wings.
   I embossed black core'dinations cardstock using the Tattered Lace with love and best wishes folder and then sanded it. Before attaching it to the base white card I wrapped satin ribbon round the lower half.
    My image is a print of a blue tit which I drew using watercolour pencils and after cutting it out using an oval Spellbinders die I matted it onto blue sheen card which I had cut out using a scalloped oval die. Finally I added a bow.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Friends - animals or birds
   Ooh La La Creations - birthday cards
   Cupcake Inspiration - cobalt, lemon, spring
   Brown Sugar - anything goes
   2 Crafty Critter Crazies - anything goes
   The Ribbon Girl - any card
   My Time To Craft - no designer papers
