Good Morning Crafty Friends

Can you believe today is the last day of April?

Where has this month gone?

Just over 6 weeks and I am off to see my best friend Deb in Florida, oh the excitement of it!
I am going to get worse as it gets nearer! LOL!

Today a card using the bird of joy stamp from Chocolate Baroque.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white square base card.
2. Matted and layered red polka dot card.
3. To create the background I used Distress Oxides, aged mahogany, fired brick and abandoned coral.
4. I then stamped the bird and words with black Versafine and embossed with WOW clear embossing powder.
5. To finish off I coloured the flowers and parts of the bird with SN sparkle pens.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Allsorts #465 - All about Pets
The Fairy and the Unicorn - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination #149 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday - Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts #47 - Anything Goes

Many thanks for visiting today!
Happy Crafting!

That's a really pretty and inky creation Linda, thanks so much for joining in with our 'All about Pets' theme at Allsorts challenge. Just a tad green you are off to Florida, love it there and especially the climate, that said we are off the the Greek Isles at the same time so should get some sunshine.
