Bright and Beautiful

I was invited to be May guest designer for AAA cards, along with great designers and interesting challenges - so it check out here: aaacards

I think my usual style is fairly clean and simple but CAS category cards are extremely so.  I think you really do have to have the vision clear before you start ... not like other styles where you can play and jiggle until you get what you want.

Image stamp: Rubbernecker
Sentiment stamp: HeroArts (part of a stamp)

I heat embossed the stamps and coloured the birds using distress inks as watercolour paints - the blue-green-purple bird is actually more colourful than shows in the photo, don't ask me why, the green didn't even show up   (Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Dusty Concord plus Lipstick Red for her beak of course!).

WOW! your card is oozing fun and cuteness here Carol. Gorgeous design, really makes me giggle with that sentiment too. Perfect for bright and beautiful and perfect for our GDT spot at AAA Cards this week too. Thanks so much and hope you get lots of lovely visits!

This is cute, Carol. I love the blue one hanging.

Oh my goodness. How long does mail take to get to you? I can't even remember when I mailed it.
