You Have To Look Up

 Hey crafty friends....

April flew by and May is here.  Speaking of flying, the new challenge topic at the Double D is "Birds, Nests, Bird Houses/Cages".  In other words, anything bird related.  There's a lovely mood board to inspire your creation.

Link up your project to the Double D Challenge Blog Bird post by Sunday, May 15th.   We'll be choosing a Top Creative Winner and 3 Creative Winners.  A winner will be chosen by random draw for the prize pictured below.

Cottage Cutz Bird Trio Die

I created this gate fold card inspired by the shades of blue along with the birds and nests.


I used an older Graphic 45 collection in my stash that I've never used before.  Not sure why because it's a beautiful collection.  Possibly why I bought it in the first place.  I'm still on the "bust your stash" challenge and have found I really don't need to purchase anything for quite a while.  I adhered a 4"x4" panel covered with patterned paper to the left side of the gate.  The fussy cut flowers are tucked in behind the panel and the sentiment card which I gave added dimension. 

Another angle with the card partially opened to show the inside details.  

And lastly, a photo of the card completely closed.

From my stash...
CTMH Vanilla Cardstock
Graphic 45 Bird Watcher Collection

I saw this on Facebook this morning and loved it. You did an outstanding job with the supplies that you already had. Amazing, but I know how that can be. I have been working on the stuff that I have here, and I sure get a good feeling when I can make a great card like this. Love that gate fold.
