Hi friends!
Our hostess this time is Vicki and she is looking for a birthday card where you add a sky to your card!

How fun is that?

I had to use another image from the very cute set from Avery Elle:  Best of the Bunch!
First I made a stencil out of some acetate and sponged twisted citron (DOX) for grass and used an MFT Cloud stencil with tumbled glass.
I actually watercolored the images with Zigs and die cut and attached it to my card.  The sentiment is from The Greetery:  Sentiment Suite: Birthday

Pretty simple and easy and I have a blue cloudy sky to show you!!
So remember the special topping for the birthday challenge is to add a sky, if you don't want to play with the topping you are always welcome to make any kind of a birthday card!

Please check out all the inspiration from the design team and our Party Guests!
Stephanie from Ingenious Inkling is our special party guest for this challenge.

Heart Hugs, friends!

Wow these fluffy white clouds are amazing! It is a wonder how by using blue ink, the clouds look so white and a perfect addition to your scene.

You did a wonderful job on your scene, Colleen. The clouds are perfect and the fox is as sweet as can be. Well done!

Linda said...

Col, this is such a cute little scene with your sweet fox bringing flowers to its recipient. And great job on the sky.

You can't help but smile at this sweet little critter with his bouquet! He looks like he can't wait to deliver it!

Love the cute little critter with the bouquet and I love the sky too - especially that it it is contained within that frame of a whitespace. All in all, a sweet card!
