Birds of a Feather

Hi everyone! Are you all sick of this wet weather yet? It seems to be going on FOREVER! About time the sun decided to show up!

Speaking of sunshine, we have a new challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge, chosen by our lovely Sari Sunshine! Sari has chosen 'BIRDS OF A FEATHER' as the theme... easy really, you have to include a bird/birds on your project!

I've gone for a very girly, floral design for my card... and no colouring... the image is a pre-coloured topper from Crafty Secrets. I've added lots of flowers to try to rekindle the summer blooms that are being spoilt in my garden by the rain! The ones on my card are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the pretty little bird is from Prima.

Crafty Emma has kindly personally donated a surprise paper pad for this week's winner! So if you like our feathered friends, then why not join in? Take a peek at the other inspiring projects from my Cupcake buddies, and if you have time leave a little comment... we love to hear from you!

Coucou Shelly ! Ta carte est merveilleuse, les couleurs font vraiment penser à l'été (été qui ne veut pas encore se montrer pff !). J'adore l'oiseau, le ruban, en fait, j'aime tout dans cette carte très féminine !
Bisous (le soleil tente une apparition aujourd'hui, et déjà la météo nous met du gris pour demain, pffff !).
Gros bisous !
