Birds Of A Feather

Good Chilly Morning!  Yup we had Spring in the palm of our hands for 3 whole days....and then *snap* right back to winter.....even with a little snow squall.....oh man!  BUT the sun is shining despite the cooler temperatures.

Today's card is for 2 Challenges, the Mix It Up Monday Challenge over at Stamp TV, hosted by my very good gal pal, Karen Hightower, add any type of metal to your card or project and for the Simon Says Monday Challenge, Winged Things.

I used the Warm Spring Wishes stamp set, available from Gina K Designs. The Designer Papers are from Teresa Collins, World Traveler.  I used my Cameo to create the FREE 'cut files'  also from Gina, click HERE.  I stamped the cuts in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and left them 'natural'.  I added 5 shiny metal brads.  Using a Black Sakura Glaze Pen I added some accents to the bird cages.   Fiskars Border Punch.  Spellbinders/Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Frame die.
Glad I didn't pack up my winter coat.  *sigh*


  1. Cute card, love the sentiment! I like the matchy matchy paper in the BG and the fact that you combined two challenges.
    I notice that you post in the morning, and I wonder if you create at night and then post.... or get up really early and make a card. Hmmm
    It is still darkish here, but promises to be warmer today. Getting up to 58 degrees!

  2. I love the papers you used on this card Donna!! Beautiful!!

  3. This is gorgeous! Love the bold baroque background! Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Hugs, Sandra

  4. Stunner Donna! Looks so victorian with the damask type dp's! Love the bird cages :*
