Summer Song Birdies


Good Morning, everyone.  Today is release day at  Doodle Pantry, and I'm excited to share a card using the new Summer Song Birdies set.  Aren't the seagulls the cutest... makes me yearn for a sunny holiday at the beach!  Here's a preview of everything this new set includes:


For my card, I colored the outline image with Copic markers and colored pencils.  Digital paper piecing of the posts/pilings was done with grunge wood digi paper from the Grunge Wood Mini Paper Pack.  The background was created by merging sky digi paper from Cupid Turtle and water digi paper from Bold Summer Digital Paper Pack behind the trio of seagulls.  The flag banner was created using my new SU! triangle punch.  

When you stop by Doodle Pantry to see the new release, don't forget to go to the Special Page to see this month's specials and pick up your coupon code.

I will be entering my card in the following fun challenges:

Craft Your Passion Challenge 211 -- Up in the Air/Things that can fly

Digistamps 4 Joy Challenge #91 -- Water Everywhere

Outlawz Greeting Challenge GCC0428 -- Anything goes must include a sentiment

Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope you have a wonderful day!
