4 Crafty Chicks' Challenge #5 and a Happy Birthday to Colour Q

Good morning! I hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods - it has sure been nice to see here in ours...we have had such a rainy, cold summer here in central Alberta - we are welcoming these 20C temps with much happiness!

Today I am bringing you a wonderful creation I "whipped up" for 2 challenges:

* 4 Crafty Chicks is at it's 5th Challenge already, and since it's the last Thursday of the month, that means it's the "Crazy Egg" challenge and there is a wonderful prize being offered by our wonderful Leanne! The challenge this week is to use a "CHICK" (bird) somewhere on our creations.....

* it's ColourQ's first birthday! They are celebrating BIG TIME and this week they issued a double-whammy! We needed to use the sketch provided AND pick our fav color combo from the past here we go.....'s the color combo that really grabbed my eye:

and here's my card using a bird, the sketch, and the awesome color combo:

Stamps: Elements of Style, It's Your Birthday; Paper: Basic Black, Poppy Parade, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Nursery Suite DP; Ink: Versafine Black, Basic Black, Poppy Parade; Accessories: clear blocks, nestabilities, vintage wallpaper and perfect dots embossing folders, dimensionals, markers, pearls
Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's blogs (on the right) for more "chicky" creations :) And also, if you have some free time, be sure to whip up a couple creations for both these awesome challenges! Take care and happy stamping!
