Bluebird Card in Blue

Hi Dreamers!
Hope your Saturday morning is going well.  I have my dinner all taken card of....put a chicken in the slow cooker.  We are having a cooler day today....for a change!!!  I was out in the herb garden cutting a few herbs for the chicken and I did not feel like I was going to pass out from the heat, again, for a change.  Very pleasant.  Today's card is a collaboration by myself and Stacey  Stacey, very kindly, stamped up some Artistic Outpost images for me to use.   The Set is called "Bluebird"  

Stacey stamped with Tuxedo Black ink (Memento) on Solar White Neenah CS.   I added Broken China Distress Ink.      The birds are colored in with a Broken China Distress Marker.  Here is a closer look.  Great stamp set!!

 I layered onto Black and Dark Teal CS.  And I added a rhinestone flourish from Zva.  

And a few Challenges for my Bluebirds:
Poodle Parlour: anything goes
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
Simply Create Too: use it two times---I used more than one bird and rhinestone.
Artistic Outpost Referral: Anything goes
Have a great weekend!!  Love ya.
