Bird Gathering

I don’t know how many times over the past few weeks I’ve told myself I was going to play along with the color challenges over at Dynamic Duos! Today I made it a point to do just that, but almost ran out of time!  The colors are one of my favorite combinations, so I really couldn’t resist any longer!

I immediately thought of these little birds…

Stamp:  Verve (sentiment from Chicks Rule set), A Muse (Chevrons)
Paper:  SU cardstock (Pacific Point, Basic Black), Paper Trey cardstock (white)
Accessories:  Memory Box die (Resting Birds), foam dots

My maiden name is the name of a bird, so with my side of the family descending upon our house for the upcoming holiday weekend, how could I not make a bird card?!  Yes, I’m a bit of a bird brain…

I popped up all five of the feathered friends for dimension after stamping a single chevron stripe.  I came across the sentiment in my Verve Stamps stash while searching for that perfect font and sentiment to use.

I’m busy being the obsessive-compulsive planner that I am when it comes to family event planning.  There will be eight children to entertain with a good chance of rain in the forecast!  Ages?  Four months up to 11, mostly boys.  I’m thinking Memorial Day cupcake decorations sound pretty fun!

Enjoy your Thursday!

    Perfect card for a spring day! Those little birds are sweet, and I love the blue stripey chevrons. Love all that wonderful white space too…room to fly! Have a great weekend with your house filled with fun, and the laughter of little ones. Bev
