The challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday this week is anything to do with the letter 'B'.  Well that gives us a wealth of ideas but my first one was the beautiful bird from Picture Perfect.  He has been in his box for a while so I thought it was time I gave him some wings again.

 I used Always Artichoke for the card base and stamped some of the leaves from this set as a background with Versamark.

The paper is from the gorgeous Serene Scenery 6x6 Designer Series Paper pack.  Oh my this paper is so lovely if you haven't tried it yet I would urge you to.  It really is paper you just want to look at but I now make myself use it!

The touch of our new Burlap ribbon seems to blend in with the mood of this card.  The bird was initially stamped in Smoky Slate, then Early Epresso then Pear Pizazz and cut out and I added dimensionals to give him some movement.  A touch of Wink of Stella to make him sparkle.

I'm singing along to 10CC whilst writing this - one of my favourite bands in the 1970's yep I'm that old lol! and it's so good to hear them again!

Hi Fiona, what a stunning bird! Love the colours and the background you've used. That Serene Scenery designer stack has some of the prettiest backgrounds for which one could wish. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Fiona, I love the colours you chose for your hummingbird - you can actually see the details of the bird. The Serene Scenery DSP is a perfect backdrop. So glad you joined the challenge this week. ~Deborah
