Love To Scrap Challenge--Let's Fly Away

Hello Dreamers!
Hope you had a great weekend!  Very nice weekend here.  Just picked my nephew and his new bride up from the airport.  They had a great honeymoon in Florida.

Time for a new Challenge on the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog!!!
The theme for the next two weeks is:

Let's Fly Away

Make a project that features something that flies: insects, birds, fairies, planes or something that inspires you to take flight.  Your project must have some stamping on it.

There are two lovely sponsors for the challenge:

Prize: 7 images of choice to winner

Bugaboo Digi Stamps

Prize: 3 images to winner


For my design team project, I made a cute, bright card with the digi Flower Bird from Bugaboo Stamps.

Materials List:
CS: White; Pale Green -  Bazzill; 
Almost Amethyst and Barely Banana - Stampin' Up
Copic Markers
Large Octagons die - Spellbinders

  • Print  digi on white CS and let dry before coloring
  • Make a card from the Pale Green CS
  • Cit a rectangle from Barely Banana CS and dry emboss
  • Add to left side of card base

  • Color the Flower Bird digi with Copic Markers
  • Cut the image and Almost Amethyst CS with the dies
