A Little Birdie Told Me

Wow, that was close. I wanted to play with the Delightful Inspiration challenge this month and I knew it was going to be tough to get it in before the deadline. Its a progressive challenge so I needed to finish this week to play next week. DS would not go to sleep so I had a total of 8 minutes to colour and post. Luckily it was otherwise assembled. I posted the picture and linked the card and by the time it posted my picture, the collection was closed. That was tight. Now I have to go back and fill in the details.

The end result is a little more simplistic than I would like but with the busy DP, I think it balances out well. I actually really like the card and I normally don't like plaid or check patterns. The image is coloured with Copics. The ribbon is So Saffron from SU and the button was inherited from my grandmother's collection. Hope you enjoy.

Challenges this card meets:
Delightful Inspiration - Use the bird image
Creative Card Crew - No Flowers (A shamrock but no flowers)
Paper Playtime - Use a digi stamp
Paper Sundaes - Stripes (Don't you just love his legs!)
Papertake Weekly - Lemon Zingy
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Use a Digi
Stamping with the Dragon - St. Patricks Day - Use green, gold and white (Look at the shamrock!)
Stamptacular Sunday - You Lucky Duck
Tuesday Throwdown - Use Scraps (The card base, the green to frame the image)
