Birdie Friends!

This week's Cuttlebug Challenge - Be Inspired #42 is :- Your challenge is to make a gatefold card, with your favorite cuttlebug folder, for National Friendship Week! This week's Challenge Card Winner will receive free Mlamarre Designs Digital Images, and will post our Winner's Blinkie!!!


I used a sweet birds on a branch stamp from a Christina Re unmounted set, the little cherry blossom flowers on the background piece are also from the same stamp set.

I stamped the birds image on watercolour paper and just gave the background a light wash with Bashful Blue Twinkling H2O's. All cardstock is from last year's Stampin' Up 'In Colours' range. The Cranberry Crisp pieces are embossed with my favourite Cuttlebug folder, the Swiss Dots!

I'd love to hear what you think of my card, thanks for visiting!
