Happy Mother's Day


Good Morning everyone!  Today, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Fab and Funky Challenge 113.  The challenge theme is Mother's Day, and I used the super fun Super Birdie digital set to create a Mother's Day card for the challenge. This set includes both outline and colored images as well as digital papers and sentiments. 

I colored the outline birdie with Copics, then coated the cape and bow with some dazzling diamonds.  I also used some Sulky holoshimmer thread to do the Spirelli technique around the scallop circles. This is such a fun and easy technique to do, and I recommend you give it a try; be forewarned though it's addictive!  There's a great tutorial on SCS explaining this technique and even includes a video by Beate.  I also used some SU! silver cord, and a handmade flower and leaves  to embellish my card.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge #137 -- Things with Wings
Paper Creations Ink Challenge #21 -- Things with Wings
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge #55 -- "Tie It Up" - Must use a digi and ribbon or cord.
Uae Your Stuff Challenge #26 -- Anything Goes  (I used a metal flower brad that I recently rediscovered in my stash .)

Hope everyone is enjoying their week.
