SO VERY GRATEFUL ~ CLEARLY INSPIRED CHALLENGE #15

It is that time again....time for another CLEARLY INSPIRED CHALLENGE!

This month we were challenged to make a THANK YOU card. Come on over and play along. If you have Clear Dollar Stamps we'd love to see them...if not...play along anyway. There is a fantastic prize to be won!!

I used three different stamp sets for my card. The Medallion de Fleur was stamped as a background on the top half of the card. I used Heartfelt Sentiments for the sentiment and Winged Whispers for my main image. The bird was stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored with my blender pen and ink. I then cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I added Crystal Effects to the bird for some added interest.

I made a circle frame using Spellbinders Circle Nesties and filled it with punched flowers to create a wreath to frame my bird.

This card also qualifies for the following challenges:

OUR CREATIVE CORNER ~ To use BLUES & GREENS

SPEEDY THE CAT'S FRIENDS CHALLENGE ~ To use more than three FLOWERS..

THE CORROSIVE CHALLENGE ~ To use Lots of FLOWERS
