Bye, Bye Birdie at FCCB

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

Challenge #247 Bye, Bye, Birdie
Make a project using a bird or birds.

This Weeks Sponsor:

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

I know it's almost spring but I decided to try to think outside the box, or in this case card, for my project this week. I actually used a Christmas set from SVG attic called Santa's Workshop for the base of the project. You can find it here.

I made this cute boot. I thought it would be adorable with spring paper. It turned out pretty cute! It also reminded me why I make cards. My patience was running pretty thin by the time I was done.

This cutie is from the Cherry Limeade image set on Cricut Design Space. I put some Wink of Stella on the pink parts before I did the doodling, but it doesn't show up in the picture. 

This is a better view of the 3D aspect of the project. I'm pretty pleased with the overall look. I may add some more embellishments after I stare at it for a while. The solid paper used on the bird is Recollections as is the crocheted lace. The patterned paper is by Brandin O'Neill for Webster's pages. It all coordinated together really well. The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

Have a great week everyone, and come join us with some birdie fun!
