Cherish Birdie Card ***Do You Stack Up**

I was chosen to be the GDT for this weeks challenge at Do you Stack Up (DYSU), WOW!!

I had tons of fun playing with this cute little birdie image and the colors orange, yellow, and brown.  I just came back from CK convention and one of the classes I took was using these great new pencils and water color blending tools, so I had to use them on the little birds.  I also picked up some great new stamps from heartfelt Creations, and I had to use them too!!

So head on over to DYSU and join in the fun!!

One the techniques I used here was to stamp my swirl pattern with my new HC stamps and then go over the swirls with stickles to give it that fun glittery effect.  I also loved the idea of the softness of the glitter with the hardness of the burlap ribbon, made a nice contrast.


Challenges:  - sketch and girly - 8/3x - garden - 8/3x - animal - 8/11x - pic - 8/8x - fav color - brown - 8/3x - bling - 8/5x
