Challenge #217 ~~ Put a Bird on it!!

Happy Tuesday!!! Shopping Our Stash has a new challenge and it's Put a Bird On It!! Now I do have a few bird stamps and a punch but I really wanted to do something different. A friend asks me to make cards for her and always asks for a Cardinal, well any image or stamp is for a winter card or Christmas  and I wanted one for her birthday which is in the summer so took the image and added flowers over the holly leaves and berries. I stamped and fussy cut every single flower and leaf.  I'm pleased with it how about you?


A fancy frame and a few rhinestones  and it's perfect.


Close up of the flowers, 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will show us your project with a bird on it.

All that fussy cutting! But hiding the Christmas foliage was a genius idea!

I love the added flowers to cover up the holly and berries.

This is gorgeous, Barb! Love your design and how you turned a Winter themed stamp into a Summery one just by covering up the holly with bright flowers! Love it!
