Tiffany Doodles and SSC.... week 4

This week is the final week of Tiffany Doodle's sponsorship over at Simply Scrapping Crafts... and you have 13 days to do any of this months Challenge.  So what's the challenge.... well it's ANYTHING GOES........
I used a beautiful bird image from Tiffany Doodles for a special "Thinking of You" card.
SSC and Tiffany Doodles ~ week 4 Anything Goes

I flipped the image as I wanted the bird facing the other way.   I used watercolour pencils to colour the bird in.  It's a Wabler, not a bird we have in NZ~ so goggled it to see what colours they are.  I added some Spellbinders Parisian Accents die cuts.  I followed the Lily Pad current sketch so am entering it there too. 

This card was sent off to my SIL in Hamilton.  She needs another operation to remove more tumours... so this is just to let her know we are thinking of her.  We are off this weekend to visit them and the new baby ( her new grand-daughter)

Please come and join us at SSC ~ we would love you to have a chance of winning some lovely Tiffany Doodle digital stamps.

Cheers

Dawn

Sooooo gorgeous, Dawn! I love the die cuts, and that beautifully colored image! I actually don't know what color warblers are usually - I just kinda colored my warbler to fit my card! ;)
