Happy Bird-day

Pin It

This card was created with inspiration from two different design challenges -
the CR84FN Color Challenge and Papertrey Paper Dolls Weekly Challenge.

Papertrey Paper Dolls challenged artists to create a card using at least three Papertrey Ink items -
one starting with a P, one with a T and one with an I (PTI).

CR84FN Color Challenge is to create a card using only three colors -
Orange, Yellow and Kraft Brown.
P:  Papertrey Ink's Polka Dot Parade Patterned Paper
T:  Papertrey Ink's Tiny Treats Stamp Set and Twill Ribbon in Summer Sunrise
I:  Papertrey Ink's Vintage Touch Ink

The little birds were die cut and glued to the medallion.
The balloon was colored using pencils and sparkly gel pens.
The center medallion and banner were layered and each raised using pop-up dots.

Supplies:  All from Papertrey Ink (except glue, tape, pencil & pen, orange chalk ink)

Paper: Kraft cardstock, Orange Zest cardstock, Polka Dot Parade Patterned Paper
Stamp Sets:  Tiny Treats Birthday , Little Bitty Bird
Die Cuts: Little Bitty Bird
Ribbon: Summer Sunrise Twill
Felt: Berry, Harvest Gold
Ink: Vintage Touch, Lemon Tart

This is my first entry into any design challenge.  What do you think?
