Dream Valley Challenge #82 and Cure for the Monday Blues

Its time for a new challenge at Dream Valley Challenge - the theme is "things with wings"


That's easy - anything from Mosquitoes to fairies is welcome....You have two week to link up with us - I hope to see you there! 

I took my inspiration from Addicted to Stamps and More


I immediately fell in love with this pretty picture when I saw it and wanted to recreate it. I sponged the pink square, making myself a stencil with a piece of scrap paper and a punch. I also used the negative die cut from the branch to sponge on the branch. The flowers I punched using the scrap paper stencil sides, which had already ink on them......Did some sponging on the bird. mounted it with foam tape and added Stickles to the flowers.

I am also linking this card up with the Snippets Playground - use a snippet
Less is More - Flowers - there is 4 on my card, although the bird somewhat dominates...
Time out challenge - Time flies, love lasts
Addicted to CAS - off the edge - my edge is the square 

Materials: Memory Box perched Reed Bird, Memory Box Woodland Branch die, Inkadinkadoo Chelsea sentiments, Michaels punch, Stickles, liquid enamel


--X--

I have a second card today - this one is for Taheera's Cure for the Monday Blues challenge. She has this fabulous inspiration picture - I have been looking at it all week long and finally found the time to play....



The stamps are Heidi Swapp and come with the die. 


Used some gold thread and paper candy and splatters as you can see.
Here is the inspiration picture:


I have to see if I can link up this card for the Snippets Playground as well - there is a lot of them here...
 This card also fits Addicted to CAS - off the edge (the hello goes off...)


I hope you like it and thanks for visiting me today!

Love this first card. I am so going to try your ideas of sponging the square and the branch...they look fabulous. Your bird is so detailed looking with the shading and the eye you have given him...fab card.
