Color Throwdown: Little Birdies

 I am thrilled to be a guest at this week's Color Throwdown! It's a fabulous color combination - with blue, navy, yellow and coral. Here's what I did with it.

Two Little Birdies

These two little birdies have been sitting in my stash for a while just waiting for the right time to come out.  With all of the layers on them - it seemed perfect to pull them out for the four rich colors in this week's challenge.  The birds are both from Spellbinders.  I wanted something to sit them on so pulled out an older die from My Favorite Things. The die is called Stitched Strip, but it looks like telephone/power wires to me so it will always stay in my stash for cards just like this one!

Two Little Birdies

Those little birds were fun to make.  I had the pieces cut out in a variety of colors and fiddled with them until I looked the way the colors worked on each one. With that long sentiment, I put the birds to one side - there is definitely some birdie chatting going on between them!

Thanks to the Color Throwdown for the inspiration.

  1. Kim, I love everything about this card - also love seeing someone else putting that stitching die to use! Your darling, colorful little birds are perhaps performing a duet of Spring songs?

  2. Kim I love these birds so much!!

  3. These cute diecut birdies are just adorable - I love the way each piece comes together to make the colourful finished bird. Awesome use of the stitched 'wires' die too.
