Blue Birds

Blue Birds - A new sketch challenge is starting at Seems a Little Sketchy.
My DP's are DCWV At Home. The doily is a Cheery Lane die; as is the thin swirly vines.

The punches are SU punches and the sentiment is Hot Off the Press.

My flowers are Heartfelt Creations Posey's cut with a coordinating SB. I shaped them with my McGill embossing tools and mat.
I added Bark elements by Barbara Trombley to the centers. I love this product. They use really elements from nature and they smell really good. This one smells like wood chips. I think quite perfect for my tree perched blue birds.

My image is Digi Doodles, who are our sponsor for this challenge. I decided that I would make my birds Blue Birds. As you can see from the image that I would on the Internet that the female is not as bright as the male; as is common with birds.
