Caardvarks :: Inspirational Challenge

Happy Friday, Bleeps! Caardvarks' new challenge is based on the inspirational photo above. I really like the bird cages, but did not own anything related, so here is what I ended up with. I used the lines from the room in the background to inspire me to use these cool new frame die cuts/stamps by Heather Nichols of PTI. I coupled them with their Out on a Limb set and Lawn Fawn's critters (birds). Niki Estes' butterflies set is great and added the perfect embellishment to this card since the inspirational photo included lots of them! Join us and make a card!

Come back a little later for more Lawn Fawn sneak peeks!

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend!

  1. Make card base.
  2. Die cut rectangles and stamp frames.
  3. Stamp tree limb (mask the left side of frame) and add birds and flowers.
  4. Stamp sentiments.
  5. Adhere frames to card front center with foam adhesive.
  6. Die cut butterflies and stamp, then adhere to frames.

Love how you partitioned the sentiments and the birds on the branches! This is a really lovely design, the butterflies finish off the look nicely!
