CAS Blue Bird Card

Hi Everyone!
Another CAS with window all occasion card today.

 I cut and embossed the window in Bordering Blue CS (Stmapin' Up) with a Spellbinders die.  I used  a cocoa colored CS for the card base.  The bird (Stampin' Up) was stamped with black ink on white CS and watercolored.   I purchased this Stampin' Up set last year because I thought I could not live without it.  LOL.  Well, it sat there for about a year and I kept thinking I really needed to use it.  So, finally, I got it out and stamped away.  It really is a nice image and I don't know why it took me so long to use it.  Crazy!  Here is a close up.


Challenges for My CAS Blue Bird Card:
Mark's Finest: use a die cut for the background
Stamping Scrapping Challenges central: Make it simple
Sweet Stampin: cute and cuddly
Clear It Out: Wings
Use It Tuesday: animals
Simon Says Stamp:anything goes
Art Impressions: Birds
Just a quick post.  I hope you are enjoying these all occasion cards.  I have a  few more that I will share with you over the next few weeks.

Tomorrow I will be back with my first Third Coast Creative Coterie (Design Team) post.  I was playing around with "reflection" stamping and have something interesting for you using a Third Coast Stamp.   See you then!  Love ya.
