Inspired by a film at Crafty Ann's

Good morning, today's card is my DT project for Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog where Ann has set us the theme of 'Inspired by a Film'. Now I don't watch much TV and very rarely watch a film so this was tricky, made even more tricky by the fact that my pesky printer is still on the blink. Anyway I had this lovely 'Bird on Blossom Branch' printed off so I've taken my inspiration from 'The Birds' even though i've never seen it lol.

The image is coloured with promarkers and cut out with sizzix die. I've used papers from Prima's Almanac paper pad, distressed with a craft knife and distress ink and added faux stitching around the edge with a black fineliner pen. I've added some cheesecloth coloured with distress stain, prima flowers, lace and ribbon  from my stash, some cute little feathers and some die cut swirls. I've also added a sentiment made using spellbinders fancy tags and a Chocolate Baroque stamp.The butterfly and birds nest are also from the Prima Almanac paper pad.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers: Lace and stitching
Die cuttin Divas: Bingo challenge (my line is ribbon, pearls, shabby chic)
Digital Tuesday: Say it with flowers
Lollipop Crafts: 2 punches or dies

Thanks for popping by today

  1. What a gorgeous creation. (I have to say the birds in the film were a tad more sinister than this one. lol) Love all those fab embellishments and the gorgeous bp too.

  2. The Birds gave me nightmares as a child - full of seagulls pecking people's eyes out & attacking human beings. Now maybe your card can dispel that image from my mind for your card is quite delightful & I love the colours - good piece of displacement therapy!
