Birdcage Color Challenge

Hi Friends,
I am still in the bird "zone". Yes, another bird card. This time it is a stamp from Stampin' Up. I used the colors from a color challenge at the Embellish Magazine blog.
The Colors are: Turquoise, Brown, Orange, and Kraft. This is a really great combo. Especially for masculine cards. The challenge also requires the use of Ric Rac.

So, this is what I came up with. I just picked up this brown and turquoise paper from Penny Lane (My Mind's Eye) the other day. It is perfect for this color combo! The Orange paper is from K & Company. I used Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up for a layer. And the card's base is Kraft. I stamped the image with Chocolate Chip ink (SU).

I used a wide Taupe colored Ric Rac from American Crafts. It is under the sheer brown ribbon. I often do this with Ric Rac. It is a nice look that adds dimension. Here is a detail photo so you can see the Ric Rac.

I have lots to do today. I have to get a bunch of invitations out today. I am having a Stampin' Up party next week. My good friend, Sharon Disney, decided to become a demonstrator this month. So, I thought it would be fun if I booked a party with her. I am her first! So, I better get to work. Hope you are having a lovely day!



  1. I Love birds too, Very sweet card.
    Thank you for your kind words on the AO blog, No the rabbit is a chipboard piece I covered with a book page, and yes I did stamp the text on the ribbon. Glad you liked it!
