Fly where your wings take you

Hi and thanks for dropping by. My card today is for a couple of challenge themes for shaped cards and also I wanted to try out an idea of making a silhouette card with die-cuts.

The die-cuts I used are Marianne Creatables LR0147 birdcage, LR0137 bird on branch & Craftables CR1216 flower vine. I dusted the card base roughlt with blue chalk. It hasn't photographed very well - the background is bluer and the die cuts are a lighter brown.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
CES challenge 'Shape It Up'
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge 'Anything But Square'
Marianne Designs challenge 'Bird/Birdcage Vintage Image'

  7. Hi Andrea

    You made a very beautiful card but you didn't use a vintage image from Marianne Design. That's one of our items in this challenge.
    That's why your card will be deleted.
    Maybe you van make it work with a vintage-image or make another card with this items.
