Good afternoon from a very windy Wales! The wind has been howling here for days!
Over at BBTB2 this week the Amazingly talented Theresa aka Treefrog asked us to use the Fence/Gate from Cricut Lite Cartridge Bloom or any other cartridge  that has a Fence/gate.
I don't own any of the Lite cartridges so decided to go with the Songbird Cart.
For my card I used design studio to make the card base using the bird on a fence which I welded to a rectangle, I cut the fence twice more and embossed it vertically using the Woodgrain embossing folder by Craft Concepts. With my last layer I cut off the bird and the slats going across the fence, coloured my little bird with Promarkers and embossed my 'slats' horizontilly with the woodgrain folder to ensure the grain was the right way!These have then been pop dotted for dimension.I cut lots of grass and the little flower border all from Plantin School cart and layered some on the bottom inside and the flower border and some more grasses along the bottom of the fence. The flower border was cut in white and coloured with Promarkers, some gems added and two little resin flowers.Papers used on my card are DCWV for the blue background and the grass is Bo Bunny paper. Finally I made a little ribbon sun using some gorgeous yellow ruffle gingham which I bought from Practising Creativity and the 'sun rays'which say hello are Making Memories Tiny Alphas which I also coloured with my Promarkers.
Don't forget to visit BBTB2 and check out all the fabulous projects created by the DT this week they're absolutely gorgeous! We'd love you to join in our challenge too!
Thanks so much  for popping in today!

What a fantastic card, Julie. It's so Springy and cheerful looking. Especially at this time of year when the weather isn't so nice. I love how you made the sun up in the corner with the ribbon and the letters on the sun rays--Brilliant.
