Fresh Aviary Birthday...


It's getting to be a bit of a habit posting on a Sundays... with nothing in between! Sorry I haven't posted more but study, work and other commitments mean at the moment I don't have a lot of free time to play. But yesterday I made myself take some time out to get creative so I could get some time to relax and take my mind off some pressing issues (this is one of the reasons I love creating things!). I combined the Freshly Made sketch from this week with the Colour Q challenge (just squeaking in this week) to come up with this:

I dug out my Aviary set - love these cute images - and put together something that mostly features Wisteria Wonder with splashes of the other colours. The flower was punched from Rich Razzleberry DSP using the Boho Blossoms punch then I scrunched the flowers and sanded them slightly, adding an Island Indigo brad through the middle. The sentiment is from Curly Cute set and I added a strip of Island Indigo ruffled ribbon underneath the banner strip for a bit of added interest and texture. I wanted to add something in the top right portion so I overstamped the dsp with a flourish stamp from Everything Eleanor using Wisteria Wonder ink.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Aviary, Curly Cute, Everything Eleanor
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder
Paper: Wisteria Wonder & Rich Razzleberry dsp, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Accessories: Boho Blossoms punch, Island Indigo brad, Island Indigo ribbon, corner rounder punch, rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to have a bit of 'me' time... hopefully will be able to share what I make with you soon...
