Be As A Bird Who Sings


 Greetings! This post is for Challenge # 20 over at Inkspirational where this week we are to CASE the card shown below.  As you can see by the various Design Team Inkspiration pieces, every one CASEd in a different way.  I elected to follow the shape of the original card and losely followed the design with a stamped image toward the top of my card and a bow at the bottom.  
Rather than red and white, I decided to go with a more neutral color scheme.  I chose a background paper and stamped my focal image and sentiment, both by Red Lead, onto the background paper.  The birds were watercolored lightly with Distress Markers.  

Our sponsor this month is Tammy of Creatively Me.  I hope you will play along during the month of May for a chance at the following prize:
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back this evening with a post for Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Hope to see you then.  Yvonne

I like the DP and how you've stamped the image and sentiment directly onto it. It's a lovely sentiment and matches the bird theme of your card perfectly!
