Gold Finch

Dear Ones~
Oh what a glorious day it has been here. And it's the second one in a ROW!!!! The snow is almost gone,  just a little left in the ditches. Tomorrow I'm hanging out sheets on the line.

Today's offering has been for the Double D Challenge~
'Yellow' A Happy Place To Be
using the inspiration tile below to make a yellow card.

Isn't this just the most beautiful inspiration?
Here's my card:

I was drawn to the tile on the top right, where that darling Gold Finch is perched atop the bird house. The finches around here are just getting their beautiful summer yellow finery, and I just adore them. I have colored the awesome stamp from the Winter Wings GKD stamp set. That stamp can be colored into a Chickadee, a Gold Finch, or any other bird that's small and finch-like. It's one of my all-time favorite sets.

Here are the Ingredients:
SU Daffodil Delight Card Stock
GKD Winter Wings Stamp Set
GKD Fabulous Frame Stamp Set by Melanie Muenchinger
GKD Fabulous Holiday Fillers Stamp Set
GKD Sweet Corn Ink
K & Company Best of Susan Winget Patterned Paper
Zig Clean Color Brush Markers
Spellbinders Die
Nuvo Crystal Drops
So that's it for me today. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by, I love your comments!!!
