A little announcement

I wanted to let the world know that as of today I am a Design team member of Southern Girls Challenge!! This challenge blog caters to every crafter whether it be for cards, layouts or off the page creations.  Pop over and say hi and join in with one of the awesome challenges today!

For my little announcement I thought I would create a nice cheerful card with one of my favourite images from Doodle Pantry.  I just love those little birdies..  He's splashing around in his little birdbath on a warm summery day (unlike here, it's winter, a little windy, and too cold to swim!)

I created this card using a sketch from Seize the Sketch.  It was nice and easy and perfect to use with my image and embellies.  I found this cute wooden butterfly button to add, and some paper flowers and twine.  The edges around the papers and hand doodled.

I also distressed the edge of the Bazzill cardstock and glossed the water and birdy's beak.  I am entering the following challenges:

  1. Doodle Pantry - Make a splash DPDC48
