Double D - Birds, Nests, or Birdhouses/Cages

Dear Ones~
Another challenge is up over at Double D, and this time it's all about birds. Here is the fabulous Mood Board for our inspiration:
And here is what I came up with:
I just ADORE this sweet little bird from the Gina K Designs stamp set Winter Wings. Sadly, it is retired and I think it's a shame. It's a wonderful set and very easy to color. 

The Ingredients:
 GKD Dark Sage and Ivory Card Stock
Tim Holtz Metallic Card Stock
GKD Winter Wings Stamp Set
GKD Something Good Stamp Set
SU Sending Thoughts Stamp Set for Greeting
Sizzix Geo Floral Die
SU Tasteful Labels Die
Penny Black Antique Frame Die
Trinity Stamps Brushed Gold Baubles

If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you could win this adorable die from Cottage Cutz, and don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created. 

 You should take a minute to swing on over to the Double D Challenge and check it out. There's lots of inspiration to be had there. 
Until next time, here's celebrating your Creative Muse!!



  1. Oh I think I picked the wrong bird, yours is glorious! I won that set way back when you could pick out your own for the prize, it's so valuable! I adore your pretty and perfectly colored bird! That sentiment is everything! Beautiful layout and design, that background is fantastic and those jewels....this is a stunner!

  2. A beautiful card Judy, love the bird stamp, Gina K had lots of stamps she discontinued I wish were still available, taught me a lesson if I like it I had better buy it LOL. Anyhow love your pretty card and the soft background, a lovely card!! Have a great day, how's the weather up there?

  3. Such a beautiful creation Judy! Love your stamped background along with that sweet bird! Awesome inspiration with your design. Happy Day!

  4. That little robin is so cute, Judy. He could be colored for any bird which is why it is such a great stamp. Your neutral background and all those layers made a wonderful card design.

  5. When I look at this card and see the sentiment, I am reminded that God takes care of the littest of birds as he takes card of us. The hymn, God will Take care of you one of my favorites. I love that subtle background and the coloring on that robin. Nice touch to add the gold baubles.

  6. The sage and gold color combination is beautiful, Judy. The distressed edges and earth tones are the perfect setting for this little birdie! Love the gold berries.

  7. I love that sentiment.... so true, and perfect for the bird. I thought the same thing as Barb. The frame and the sponged ripped edges on the paper and the pearl for flowers classic shabby chic.

  8. Such a good message for anyone, and your card is darling too!

  9. So sweet and beautiful, Judy! The colors are soothing, and I love what you did with the berries on the branch. That's a great message, too.

  10. This is a really beautiful card Judy, so much texture and such lovely details to create the overall scene.
