    This is a card for someone who loves birds. I have often seen little wrens looking for insects in the garden hedges near where I live.
    I embossed grey blue centura pearl card using the Die'sire embossalicious folder 'birthday text' and then attached brown ribbon vertically and horizontally. This was then matted and layered onto brown core'dinations cardstock and white card. A bow was then glued to where the two strips of ribbon crossed.
   The digi image, 'wren', from Ike's Art was coloured using Promarkers and distress ink was then dusted round the edges. It was then matted onto brown mirri card cut using a Spellbinders classic scalloped rectangle die before fixing it to the card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Ike's World - things with wings  
   Through the Purple Haze - sketch
   Imagination Crafts - things with wings
   Crafty Ribbons - anything goes with ribbon
   Addicted to Stamps - things with wings
   Whoopsi Daisy - hand coloured image
   Crafty Little Fairies - in the garden

Just brilliant crafty! You are has to be a bird lover to be able to know the colors and to color the birdie from their soul, which it certainly looks like you have done. you have brought the bird to life! I love that, because I don't know birds worth beans!! I love the blue and brown combo...the very slight backing on the bird is wonderful, especially with your blue sponging. gorgeous card! Thanks for coming to Ike's World Challenge and good luck with the Prize. See you again! Best, Samara DT, Ike's World Challenge
