CIC199 - Pink Cat Studios

These little trees are so dang cute.  I would love to have these for decorations in my home.  They're so cheerful and perfect for spring.  I love all the pastel colors and the little birds.  So when I saw  the birds in the trees image at Pink Car Studio I just had to have it to make my card for this week's challenge.  There are so many cute images there I wish I could win the prize and add a few more images to my stash. 

It's perfect isn't it?  I used the colors from the inspiration photo when I colored it, and found papers that also had the inspiration photo colors.  It's hard to see the designs on the papers.  The bottom paper is a wood grain print and the one above it is tiny trees.  They are mostly in shades of greens and aquas.  For some visual interest there are three strips of different prints with more colors crossing near the bottom of the card, they have the divine twine wrapped around them.  To make the card pop I used a bright pink thread for the machine stitching as well as pink bling and a pink sentiment. 

Next Sunday we celebrate our 200th challenge!  How exciting is that?  Mark your calendar, you'll want to be there and in the meantime, don't forget you can be entered for a prize if you leave a comment on the challenge blog.
