"Freebird" .... PPA36 Color Challenge card



















Ever have someone do you a great favor? This Thank You card I made was inspired by that theme. I also like how it seems to suggest a little story...

Used sentiment & bird cage image from Happy Moments sale-a-bration stamp set and paper pieced bird from the Flower for All Seasons stamp set (bird from the tulip basket stamp). Hardest part was masking the bird image for an empty birdcage on the last image (I used a stampin'write marker to color all but the bird). The lines aren't perfect so don't look too hard! :)

I stamped the other Flower for All Seasons bird image a few times on the light yellow cardstock and then cut out the bird shapes, including some extra wings, etc so I had lots of different images of the bird standing or in flight.

The color combo for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge...highlighting color combo of lavender lace, barely banana & certainly celery. Thanks for looking!
