Some Birdie...



Happy New Year to all my friends at Just Us Girls! I hope you are putting 2013  behind you and getting ready for everything 2014 will be bringing you!

We have an awesome sketch for the first challenge of the new year, courtesy of Nancy.


I gotta say I was a bit sad to put the Christmas stamps away, but it had to happen and Valentine's day is right around the corner. 

I went for  a taste of spring in the middle of winter here in Pennsylvania with the sketch. The first card I made just didn't sit well with me- to pale and dull- see below card. I had lunch and went back and recreated it and was much happier.



This is a pale imitation of the card I remade for the challenge.

Great card, Sue! I love this little bird and how you've mixed orange and blue-two of my favorite colors together! Using the cloud paper was genius and I love the rounded corners on the panels! Umm, love it all!

This is darling! I love how the branch extends all the way across the panels. Great color combo and I really like that cute little bird, too.

What a cute card. Love the sweet bird on the branch and the cloud background. I like both cards but the brighter one does look better. TFS
