For the Inspire Create Challenge, we have a sketch challenge this time! I've been itching to play with the Free As A Bird stamps and the gorgeous Bird Ballad Designer Series papers that go with them.

 I used a little artistic license and changed the layout from portrait to landscape but other than that kept to the sketch. This birthday card is going to a friend who shares the month of August as our birthday month. I hope she loves it, there's nothing quite like a hand made card in the post💕

It was pretty easy to make. I love the colours in the papers and the feathers are one of my favourites. I stamped the birds on a branch image in Memento Black on a strip of Whisper White the same width as the DSP layer and coloured them with Blends. The colours I used are Crumb Cake, Light Coastal Cabana and Petal Pink. I coloured the leaves in Light Old Olive and the flowers in Light PoolParty. The alcohol Blend pens are my absolute favourite at the moment for colouring, they blend so well.

I stamped the birds on a branch image again and cut it out using one of the stitched circles from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I coloured it in and layered it using a couple of Dimensional foam pads. I used the Well Written Dies to create the Happy Birthday. I cut them out in Crumb Cake and Pool Party, sandwiched together a little offset to make it pop.

The gorgeous scalloped edge lace ribbon is beautiful, it's part of the Suite too. I stamped the birds inside too. You can just see it here.
