It's time a for a new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday  and the twist for this week's challenge is "Wings". The sponsor for this month is Nicecrane designs.

I don't do girly cards very often, and I've never used green on my card unless it was a requirement for a challenge I wanted to participate in, but this sweet image from Nicecrane designs did inspire me to go out of my comfort zone for my DT card.

I colored the image with Promarkers. The green DP is from Webster's pages. I machine stitched with white thread around the edges. I used a Marianne die to cut the birdhouse and a Memory Box die to make the 3 die cut birds. The sentiment is a rub-on and translates "For you" in Norwegian. For the banner I used a Kaisercraft clear stamp. I heat embossed it with white powder on white background. Pearls and flowers from my stash - I don't use flowers very often on my cards, so I've got quite a lot of  them  in my stash.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Crafter's Cafe - #29 Flowers
2) Sisterhood of Crafters - Use a digi
3) Crafting When We Can - #53 Seasons (spring colors)
4) Shopping Our Stash - #119 Oldest Flowe
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
