Birds

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

I hope that you are all well and having a good weekend.

Today quite a bit of admin to do as well as a couple of videos, one of which I will share what crafty goodies I bought at Doncaster yesterday.

I had a wonderful day catching up with crafty friends and getting some of my crafty essentials as well as a few treats too!

Today's card is all about birds, Blue Jays to be exact which I won from Stamp on it.

2. Using Tattered Lace square layering dies cut out green and patterned red card.
3. Printed image and coloured with above Copics before matting and layering onto green card.
4. Added red pearl gems around the coloured birds.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment.
