Yellow Bird

I'm playing along with this month's Papertrey Ink customer blog hop, where we're being inspired by these amazing images that Nichole Heady posted ...

 I went totally literal and I liked it. I'm not sorry at all in fact!


I masked off an oval on my card front and ink blended some Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart onto it. I then added flowers and birds (PTI Spring Woods, Don't Forget to Write, Friendly Flowers and Atenew Vintage Roses) and finished off with a little sentiment from The Stamp Market.

And that's it from me. Happy Hopping!

P.S. Somebody stop me! I've recently started following Prima Marketing again and I feel an overwhelming urge to order more/new flowers to add to my already ginormous collection! They do come in handy for project photo taking. :)

Beautiful Diana! Sometimes "literal" is just perfect like this card.

Very nice, Diana!

Diana, you nailed it once again! Your flowers, leaves and bird are delightful but I especially love how you tucked in that cute sentiment. Your photography is beautiful even without Floral props. 😊

Absolute perfection! Such a happy, happy card. Now, step away from the Prima flowers. They do not make cards very mailable! <3

Gorgeous..,why didn't I think of just using die cuts? I cut but used it as a mask...I adore your card! And those two leaves coming off the bird are wonderful!!

Cheryl said...

How pretty! I love how the subtle background grounds everything.

Very pretty interpretation of the challenge.

WOW...this is one GORGEOUS card Diana! I absolutely LOVE the leaves in the Friendly Flowers set (just used that set for my MIM card this week!) and I really, really love how you used them as wings on your bird! You get the A+ this week girl...love it!! :0)
