CAS Birthday Chicks

For this A6 sized card I kept it clean - no designer papers or bling on this one!
I used a digi from From The Heart Digital Stamps. I chose to fussy cut the birds, attaching them to a purple panel, then onto a white panel mounted on foam on a white card base.
I used Promarkers in different shades of purple and orange, which came out a bit more bold than I had planned for to be honest, and the balloon is covered with glossy accent for a translucent feel.
The sentiment is made with a clear stamp and is heat embossed with orange embossing powder, to match the color of the balloon.

This card is for these challenges:
1) House of Cards - September Color Challenge + CAS
2) Crafter's Cafe - #28 No Desinger Paper
3) One Stitch At A Time - #180 Use a Digi
4) Craft Your Passion - Glitter and/or Gloss
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

I think the brightness of the orange and the darker purple are what makes this card so special.

Ths colours pop, making a fabulous contrast with the white layers.

Your story of the funeral scene ws so sweet. Kids are such special little treasures. I so enjoy my walks back and forth to school with the grandchildren. They are very aware of nature, aware of the birds, butterfly's, dragonflies, insects etc that we see each day.

They have long conversations about what they see and it is amazing how much they know about animals and insects. I am often learning from them!

Wow, this is a beautiful card with such lovely impact Pia. The drama of your Purple and Orange against the White is stunning. Your birthday party birds are so much fun too - how on earth did you manage to cut those skinny legs so accurately .... I think you must have a lot of patience. Good luck in our challenge this week.
