A Happy Hello …

Hello friends,

Today’s creation is a sunny Spring card, inspired by the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme is “Yellow – A Happy Place To Be!” Yellowand with such a  lovely inspiration photo  you can just let the creative juices flow. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog and start creating – we would love to see your card this fortnight.

I love the beautiful bird house in the inspiration tile and decided to make  it the main focus of my card. I die cut three birdhouses with a Cottage Cutz die, layered them on yellow gingham paper and a paper doily. To finish of  I added green swirls, paper roses, a few birdies and a happy “hello” sentiment. Hope you are inspired by my card and will join in the fun at Double D Challenges.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    A beautiful inspirational card for summer and spring! I love the birdhouses, the layout of the card with the vines and birds, along with the distressed gingham papers. The way you finish the inside of your cards always amazes me and puts that extra special touch to it. Have a wonderful week! Hugs
