Birds Abound

Happy Monday everyone! I have a post to share with you tonight of a card I created for this week's challenge at Make My Monday Challenge. During April the theme continues to be Men and Boys and this week, specifically, we are to include Birds or Animals. When I contemplated my design, I decided I wanted to feature a boy and birds and thus the Bluebird plate from Artistic Outpost came to mind and all images shown are from this plate. The images were each stamped with Black StazOn ink on white card stock, trimmed , water colored with Distress Inks and distressed with Old Page, Broken China and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. The elements were layered on designer background paper. Finishing touches include black and gold striped ribbon, black liquid pearls, vintage blue buttons, cheese cloth, a bird feather and burlap string.

This is amazing Yvonne! I love the way you've used the same colour palette for each of the four images and I like the embellishments.
