Crafty Ann's Challenge 18

Crafty Ann's Challenge  this time around is to make a Shaped Easel card .... mmmm sounds tricky BUT if you pop along to Crafty Ann's she has some fab free templates (have a look here) to make life a little bit easier. Here's my DT card for this weeks challenge

Just to be different I haven't used one of the free templates as I'd already started making this bird in a frame. I've used quite a few of Crafty Ann's digis for this card though:
To finish off I've stamped an Elusive Images sentiment on to an oval, embossed with Antiquites EP and inked with Vintage Photo DI. I've also added an old gold velvet bow.

I've really enjoyed making this card, I love watching the birds out of the window and I don't even mind too much when the dawn chorus wakes me up lol. I'm also entering my little birdie in the following challenges:
Ooh La La: Simply Summer
Corrosive Challenge: Flowers, Flowers, Flowers
Pile it on: Do something interesting with your paper
Digital Tuesday: Summertime
Just Scraps: Make mine a double (I've used the circle frame twice for this card)
Creative Card Crew: Easel Card
Thanks for looking in and I hope you're going to join us for this weeks challenge
