Each month there is a MISTI challenge at Split Coast Stampers. This month it is to use the Pantone Color of the Year, Brilliant Blue. After thinking in blue tones for several days, I looked in my drawer and found a pretty good match.
The blue embossed background, is The Stamps of Life Blueberry cardstock. I saw the idea for birds on these trees from Darlene DeVries of Live Love Cards. I went with larger birds than hers, from Toucan Do It from Catherine Pooler Designs. I colored those birds with Tombow markers. The sentiment is from a set called Bird Banter from Stampin Up. I mounted the sentiment on Calypso Coral cardstock, as it seemed to go well with the pink colored bird. I used Gina K Design Key Lime for the cardbase. I enjoy these birds and this was fun to create.
