Bird On A Wire for the PCCC

It's more like Bird Under the Wire....I started this card yesterday morning, had to put it away to get ready for a class last night ~ I had three card makers, one scrapbooker and two knitters!!! And YES, two more gals knitting, they hadn't ever held a pair of knitting needles before, so right to the beginning...and they got it! Yipee for them ...anyway.....back to my story! So then when I got up this morning (knowing that I only had until 11am) ~ got up, got myself together, headed into the city to take our grandson Seth to school, stopped at the Meat Market, picked up what I needed for dinner tonight, zipped home, ran downstairs, finished my card, grabbed my laptop and here I am....thanks so much for joining me....are you throughly exhausted yet!!! SO much fun...I actually really like this card, I wasn't sure at first, but now that it's together, I'm pleased!

So here is the challenge from the PaperCraftCrewChallenge ~ thanks so much for the challenge, I really struggle with color challenges, so this is just the stretching and climbing out of the box that I need!

and a fabulous Sketch to follow!

 And my card! As you can see, I didn't have my wheel well inked (say that fast 10 times)...but I guess it almost looks like it was done on purpose!

Super fast post...but thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. Oh yes.....you mastered it! You know I agree with you that these colours would be very difficult to put together, but I love what you ended up with. This is a wonderful sketch too. I do love the girl on the swing seen through the open window - such a pretty scene. The bird and the buttons....wonderful accents. Great job my friend.

  2. So pretty....I love the little vignette you created! I saw those colors and went running for the hills, but you nailed it! Lovely!

  3. Love your interpretation of the sketch. Thanks so much for playing along this week with the Paper Craft Crew.


Thank you for taking the time in leaving me a comment! I hope I have inspired you ~ I do take the time to read each comment and value your words of encouragement! Have a great day and happy creating!
