Hello - Bird

Ok, so here is my 2nd post for the day!!
I don't know about you, but I have
a drawer full of extra die cuts.
When I am short on time,
I like to look through my drawer
to see if there is anything I can
use for the project I am working on.
I had this window card already
cut out from Don Juan, I beleive it is cut at 6".
It was already embossed using a folder from Cindy Loo.
I thought it would be perfect to use
with the Spellbinders
Bird Sanctuary Die!!

I love the colors!!

I inked the embossed areas of the diecuts
and then went over them with Glitter Gel Pens.

I added some ribbon and a
homemade stick pin.
I finished it off with a tag and sentiment from

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Yikes, I just commented and my silly blogger went all haywire! So I am sorry if this posts twice!

I love your card. The sparkle and the colors. I am really loving the ribbon and I want some!

Great idea on the extra die cuts. I just started saving mine too. I used to teach Kindergarten and I always brought the extra letters in for the kids to play with.

I love your card and it was a great addition to our challenge at Fantabulous Cricut this week! Thanks for playing!
