A big welcome to Geri who won last month's Flourishes challenge and joins us this month on the BBB Challenge team!

Can you see my little tweeter??  Up high in the tree is my little blue bird for this month's challenge!  :)  I started with a base of yellow bazzill and layered with white and then some DCWV paper.  Across this I've added some wide yellow satin ribbon.  Next I've added a white paper doily over the middle.  I've stamped the image from Hello Baby in Memento Tuxedo Black onto blending card and coloured with Copic Markers (Green Grass Collection, Daffodil Collection, New Browns Collection, Clematis Collection, Water Collection).  It's been cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with yellow bazzill cut with Lacey Circle Nestabilities and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a big yellow bow and a couple of Kasiercraft Snow Pearls to the top corner.

Stamps - Hello Baby (Flourishes)
Paper - Blending Card, Yellow Bazzill, White, DCWV DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copic Markers, Large Circle and Lacey Circle Nestabilities, Paper Doily, Bow Easy, Yellow Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.

Don't miss the beautiful creations the team has for you today.....
That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you'll play along with us this month!!!  :)

Just lovely Kathy, so fresh and of course the techniques you taught me at the Brisbane Expo I see you have used in your card to perfection. Hope you have lost the bad cough!
