Card Makin' Mamas #17

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, March 18, 2011
Karen's Doodles is sponsoring us at Card Makin' Mamas this week!  And what better challenge for them to sponsor than ANIMALS??  Karen has some super cute animals to use and has offered up an image to each of the Design Team members this week - Thank You!

I chose to use Ollie and his new gal, Olga for my card, and this time I actually colored them up as Ostriches instead of Flamingoes!  I don't know why, but I ALWAYS reach for my pink markers when I color these images!!  But, I think they look awesome in Ostrich colors, too!!

This card is a little different for me... there's very little layering, the image isn't matted and I cut out almost everything!  The grass is actually part of the paper, the clouds are too, but I cut them out and glued them back on to add dimension.. of course I HAD to use my Nesties and cut out some hearts!  And, I actually "fussy-cut" the lovebirds instead of using Nesties or keeping them square.  All in all, I like the effect and think it's a really cute card!  If I say so myself, that is!  I hope you like it, too!

This cards wants to play along in the Keep It Simple challenge at Paper Sundaes this week :)
