Good Morning!  Today I wanted to let you all know that I was featured as a guest designer on the Creative Belli Blog.  I love the Creative Belli blog, they have great challenges and the DT always has such great samples posted!  Here is the link to post where I'm featured as their guest designer, how exciting!  Thank you for having me!

Their current challenge was to make a card with an animal on it and this is what I came up with, as for the colors I chose to use...well the color wheel made me do it...LOL! 

I stamped the bird cages and then stamped a bird in each cage.  The cage on the left and on the top right were stamped and then cut out.  I thought it was neat that I ended up making the birds face each other and the 'friend to friend' sentiment just seemed to fit so nicely.

My background is embossed using the polka dots embossing folder and I used my scallop border punch to punch the little bit of rose red card stock that I used along the bottom of my main image panel. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I won't be posting again until Saturday morning because I'm busy getting ready for my yard sale.  Have a great day!
