I made it 3D. The card is 1/4 inch think. I did the background with sponges. Used Brilliance inks sky blue, yellow and orchid to make a sunset. My birds I make I copy from the magazine Birds and Blooms. It is one of my favorite magazines. When I do the birds I write on the back of then so I can remember what they are called. This one is easy but some of then are really hard. If you do not know this is an Oriole. I try and come pretty close to what they look like. The punch I have is from Stampin’ up it is called the bird punch.

For the top and bottom punch is Martha Stewards border punch Laurel Leaf, it makes a nice border.

Here is a closer look at my Oriole.

Bird by the side flowers The flowers are from Martha Steward Hydrangea punch, leaves are the Fond punch and the Autumn Branch punch.

Here is a close up of the window with the bird. I have no idea why I made a card with punches but it was fun. I really did not want to make a card with a bunny for a guy so I know my guys would of liked something like this. So this is what I came up with and I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful week.

 

Hugs, Patricia

I like the 3D and the cozy colors. Sharp colors on the flowers but it looks strange against the dark background.
