CAS-ual Fridays...Birds

Happy Monday!!  Wow...it was an amazing turnout and party at CAS-ual Fridays' first birthday  last week...thanks to all of you who joined in the fun and congratulations to all the winners!!  At CAS-ual Fridays this week, the challenge is to make a clean and simple card with birds...the challenge...
This week's sponsor is Annabelle Stamps... An Australian company with wonderful stamps sets....check them out!!!
The winner of this week's challenge will receive a $20  gift voucher!!....how cool and what fun is that??!!

This is the card I made for this week's challenge......
 I made my card using a simple but becoming a favorite of mine layout that I will be using again in the coming weeks!  It is super simple, but I think it is a panel with a lot of interest and LOTS of possibilities...very versatile:)!!  I stamped the Memory Box Thicket Birds with stazon black, clear embossed and dotted the dots on the branches with Peacock Liquid Pearls.
  On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the sentiment(Hero Arts Good Friends), clear embossed and layered whole panel on black.  Used Hawaiin Shores ribbon by Papertrey Ink (made my bow with my  Bow Easy) and layered on Stampin Up Bermuda Bay card...very similiar colors.   I used one of my Annabelle Stamp sets...Backgrounds By Design 5 and stamped a background with Versamark on the card before attaching the main panel.
Hope you come join the challenge this week...Don't forget to check out the CAS-ual Fridays Facebook page for daily inspiration(I'm there, too:)!!)...you have until Thursday at noon to enter the challenge....it will be "tweet"...lol...just couldn't resist!!  Thanks for visiting me today...hope your day is wonderful!!!  Hugs!!!  Lisa
