April 2023 Triple B Challenge - Birds, Butterflies and Blossoms

Hi Friends and Happy Monday!  It's a busy Monday, I have 3 posts for you today so let's get started!

I've been invited to Guest Design for the April challenge of the Triple B Challenge - Birds, Butterflies and Blossoms.  The premise of the challenge is to include at least one of the "B"'s, either birds, butterflies, blossoms, or you can include 2 or all 3 elements, and there is a mood board to inspire you.  The mood board for this month is:

I was inspired by the Birds and Blossoms in the mood board and I have the Layered Birdie Die Set from Simon Says Stamp.  This was the 1st time I've used this die set and it's one of those crafty items that gets pushed down in the "To Use" Basket in your craft room.

I decided since I was die cutting the birdie layers, I would die cut some bitty blossoms and branches.  After die cutting all the pieces, I've ink blended everything except the foliage, which I left white.

The patterned paper is a scrap from a Polkadoodles Digital Paper Pack and the sentiment is from a card swap.  I've placed small pink gems in the middle of the flowers and 1 black gem for the birds' eye.  One flower and the sentiment have been popped on craft foam for dimension.  

I appreciate being invited to Guest Design with this talented team, I've had loads of fun creating this Spring-time Card using this little birdie die.  Hop over to Triple B and see what the team has created, I'm certain you'll be inspired.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
