BEST BIRDS - WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE 114/ SUO CHALLENGE

It's a colour challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday this week -


 
 

 Hmm - Calypso Coral is not a colour I use very often so a real challenge for me.
I've used the wonderful Best Birds and the Birds and Blooms framelits for my cards and what's even better about this set is its not retiring WooHoo!

Over at SUO Challenge - the theme is Sympathy and Caring. I think this gentle card would be very suitable for sending to someone who needs a hug.

 


 I love the crackle stamp in this set as its great for backgrounds and looks so pretty with the Pool Party Ink.  The bird was coloured in with the Calypso Coral Watercolour pencil as I don't actually have the ink.

 HAPPY CRAFTING

What a great card to showcase this weeks colour challenge at Watercooler Wednesday (WWC114). Love it. I'm so happy that little bird and matching framelits is not retiring. Everytime I see it I think I have to add that to my sets. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful card. You did an amazing job with incorporating the Calypso Coral into your scene.
