I've gone to the birds!

I discovered another challenge site and I really liked the sketch and I am sure I will use it again.  The challenge this week from Just Add Ink is a sketch:
 
  
The inspiration from Pals Paper Arts:
  
Finally my card which also incorporates the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge - 3 textures (I did emboss the center panel but it is hard to tell) and The CCEE challenge - Red, Black and Cream.  Finally, because of the vintage feel it works for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Back in Time.

  
Pattern Paper: CTMH (Silhoutte, Notebook); Jenni Bowlin (red)
Stamps: CTMH (Noteworthy, Love Birds)
Hemp: CTMH
Buttons: PTI

While I had this stamp set out, I wanted to make a CAS card for the Saturday Spotlight Challenge.  So I took in some more Color Challenges.  The first one: Curtain Call
  
This is from another Challenge site that I was invited to take part in.  Picture Perfect Creations:


Of course it is also another card for the Pals Paper Arts inspiration since I again included the bird cage.  This also fits the Olympics of Stamping on the Moxie Fab blog.

Stamps: Love Birds (CTMH); Out on a Limb (PTI); sentiment (CHF)
Kraft: PTI
Cardstock: CTMH
