CR84FN40 Week 2 -- Happy Bird-day

Hello! It's week 2 for the current CR84FN Challenge! If you haven't played along yet, you have just under a week to play in CR84FN40.  Our color palette is Red, Brown and Kraft. Photo credits (L to R): floral by Flower Talkcherries: Photography by Chantel Marie Photographyapple: Photography by Aaron Delesie).

It's been a busy week and my mojo is a bit on the low side, but it's the registrar's birthday next week, so I sat down and made this card for her yesterday. I used MFT's newly released Die-namics Contempo Cage and Stamp set to die cut my bird cage and bird.

For sketch inspiration, I started with this week's WSC Getting Sketchy #41 from My Favorite Things. I flipped the sketch. All the challenge details can be found HERE.

For all the CR84FN challenge details, please be sure to visit the CR84FN blog HERE. I hope you will join us this week.. I can't wait to see what you create! For more inspiration, please visit my fellow design teammates:
