Good Morning! Today is Thursday and time for the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge. For this week's challenge, Lori sent us this inspiration from the Acacia catalog. I decided to use the colors of the one plate with the ribbon. I apologize for making another

bird card this week but it was perfect for the challenge. I used the Sing tothe Lord set from Our Daily Bread Designs. Although I used the same bird from Tuesday, it looks totally different because of the coloring. I decided it would be fun to make another tri-shutter card (Monday's TLC challenge on SC). The papers are from Martha Stewart- Playful Blue. I colored the bird to look like a robin and cut it out adhering it to my dry embossed background. The flowers are Daisy Dream prima flowers that are available at Our Daily Brad Designs. The leaves next to the flowers were punched using the three leaf punch from MS. The borders were punched using the Fleur De Lis Border Punch on Bitter Chocolate. The directions on how to make this style card are found here.
Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Sing to the Lord
Paper: MS Playful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Bazill Bitter Chocolate, White, Water color paper (for the image)
Accessories: Prima flowers, Fleur De Lis Border Punch, Textile Embossing Folder, Labels Four Nestabilities, Grossgrain ribbon, MS 3 leaf punch
I hope you enjoyed this post. For more inspiration, please visit the rest of the amazingly talented design team: Lori, Julie, Chat, Angela, and Keri. I hope we inspire you to play along.
