Birdie Brown's Freebie Challenge


Happy Friday!  I can't tell you how excited I am that the weekend is here.  It's been a long week.  I started my exercise program back up and boy am I feeling it. lol  Today I want to share with you a card I made using the adorable image from Torico over at Birdie Brown.  Torico is so generous that she gives away a freebie monthly and then allows us to enter them in her awesome challenge.  I couldn't wait to color this little guy up using some yummy Fall colors.

Here's my creation...

I started out with a 6x6 scallop cardstock based.  I layered on some SU Chocolate chip cardstock and then some dp from 6x6 pad.  I then had some extra dp leftover from another project and it had some cool Fall colors so I layered that on as well.  I used my Spellbinder's Wonky Rectangle diecuts to cut out the mat, dp and image.  I then added a little sentiment tab and a leaf.  I love the colors and now that I look at my card it could totally be a male card, don't you think?

Thanks for looking and commenting!
