Birthday Bird

     This gorgeous 'Bird on a Wire' is from Beccy's Place and I thought it would be great on a sophisticated birthday card.  


I first pulled my colors from the photo inspiration


     I colored with my ProMarkers (again, my favorite coloring medium) and highlighted the feathers with a white gel pen.  The image is cut with a deckled rectangle die from Spellbinders, as is the pale blue mat behind it.  I matted those pieces with another die cut (Sue Wilson).

     The ribbon is fabric ribbon and the bow is made with satin ribbon.  The sentiment is printed with a simple, computer-font, then adhered at the bottom of the image.

     Challenges:

     That's it for me today but since I did two posts yesterday, I guess that's enough.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Such a serene and beautiful card! I love how you used the colors and the white highlights on the bird really bring it to life. So glad you continue to share your creations at Tuesday Throwdown.

The colour scheme is fabulous NC, I really like the contrast. You did an awesome job colouring the image too, the addition of the white highlights at the end of the feathers really brings it forward. Great job!
Cheers,
Beccy
