Fun with the Bird Punch!

Hello, everyone! It's a beautiful morning here... not too hot and the sun is shining! I started this card last night, but I didn't finish it... so I got up this morning and put it together!

I haven't used my Bird Punch as much as I thought I would... actually, I just forget to use it! I really love how it makes a great 3D image! I just punch it out and then mount the different parts on dimensionals!

The sentiment is from On a Pedestal and I used Stampin' Write Markers to make it two toned.

The paper I used is Throughly Modern designer paper... I know some people were not fans of the in-color Bermuda Bay, but I am kind of sad that it's retired now! I think it's a fun turquoise color!

This card is for two challenges:

#1 - The Mojo Monday Sketch
#2 - The Color Throwdown to use Turquoise (I used Bermuda Bay), Chocolate (I used Soft Suede), and Cream (I used Whisper White).

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!


  1. What a lovely card, Riley! I love the bird punch you used and these colors go well with it!

  2. Love the bird and the color combo is devine. Beautiful card.

  3. This is just beautiful. Love the colors!

  4. I am with you...I forget to use this bird punch too (just HAD to have it) so I am glad you've "reminded" me! Lovely use of these papers---perfect for the CTD!

  5. Riley, this is a fabulous card using the CTD colors! Out of all the in colors, Bermuda Bay was probably my fave.

  6. Beautiful card, Riley! That Mojo sketch completely intimidated me, but you rocked it! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown!

  7. Such a pretty card. Love the colors and that bird is just perfect. :o)

  8. Wow you have an incredible knack of knowing what colors to put together, this is amaZing. Love the bird and the ribbon too. A really neat take on this sketch.
