Birthday Green and Gold

Have you ever started on a card with a picture of exactly what you want in your mind and then - WHAM! What happened?  LOL, I knew I was going to use this beautiful Bird from the Cricut Cartridge "Straight From the Nest" (LOVE this Cart!!), but for some reason it went a different direction...and I like it!  I counted up the Birthdays that I need cards for in October and there was like 12 or so.  October is my busiest Birthday month, thus I am starting early and I DON"T want them all to be Halloween cards!

I have to admit I LOVE the branch on the second page!  You could really give this card to either sex, cause men and women both like to fluff out their feathers and preen a bit! Here is the recipe:
  • Cricut Carts: Straight from the Nest, Plantin Schoolbook
  • Paper from K&Company and Core'dinations
  • VersaMagic Ink-Spanish Olive, Distress Ink-Tie Dye
  • Bakers Twine,  Heidi Grace Rhinestones
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Fantabulous Cricut Ch Me Monday#74 - Birthday Bash
  2. Paper Playtime Ch#53 - Anything Goes
  3. Little Scrap Pieces - No Challenge, Challenge
Have a GREAT week everyone and thanks so much for spending your precious time with me!
