Crazy pink bird-day

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, life has kept me pretty busy lately, but yesterday I managed to browse through all of the Challenge blogs I love and I actually made a challenge inspired card.

When I read the Tic Tac Toe Challenge on the Paper Players I was hooked, because I am still wildly in love with Tim Holtz's birds. So that was my starting point, pink birds with bling.

From there I decided, that I wanted a Birthday card, because I always linke to play along with the Stempelküche-Challengeblog and Seize the Birthday.

When I was all done with the panel, I wanted to adhere it straight to the card, but then I remembered the Sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches.

So I went with a lose interpretation of that. I didn't cut off any edges and I added that pink piece of cardstock, but I hoped it would still be close enough.

The sentiment and black sequins are new, I got them at the local craft fair a few weeks ago. The sentiment is from a German sentiment set by Efco. They have quite a few cute little sentiment sets that are not too expensive. I only discovered them at the fair, but I think they must have been around a while now.

That's it from me for today, I hope you all have a good day.


PS: I was too slow for CAS and Stempelküche, both Challenges were closed by the time I had my blogpost prepared...But I am not going to edit them out, I used their inspiration after all, even if the Challenges are closed by now.
