Bluebird of Happiness 2015

Welcome everyone it is that time again for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and for this week the twist is “Triple play”  make a card with 3 different colors. Stop by and check out all the other designers cards they all did a fantastic job. We have a new sponsor for the month of November and it is Ppinkydolls.

I did burnish the front of the card and the edges of the die cut some with distress ink color peacock feathers. The spellbinder I used is called pearl effects.

To make the banners I used Creative Expression Sue Wilson frames and tags pierced flags.

The bottoms and ribbon set are from Stampin up called best year ever ribbon and best year ever bottoms. The 3 colors all come in the set. Then I match the coordination's paper up with the colors.

I want to tell you I tied these bows with a fork. This way they would be very small.

This is how the inside turned out, using most of the scraps. The sentiment is from TLC. I Used a border punch,  I have had for many years.
