Embossed Elegant Bird

I finally pulled out this bird die to play with.  I didn't purchase it right away - but I grew attached to it seeing some of the wonderful creations that have been done - and then using at an Extravaganza.... so I've used it for the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments to use birds in this weeks' creation.

I've incorporated the colours from the Splitcoast Colour Challenge - Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and the "dessert" was Lucky Limeade.

Finally - I've included "frilly" elements for the SUO Challenge; "Fancy Frills".

I realized when after I embossed the edge, that I don't have the matching scallop Edgelit....at least it was easy to cut out.  I know I'm going to enjoy all of the different paper piercing guides.   WoooHooo!!!!!

I had a fantastic time this afternoon at school with the grade 3-6 classes.  I created a campfire with a lamp, we sang the campfire songs that I taught them, and a mom came in to help bake some-mores for us.  What a blast.

Hope you have a great end to the your week!  Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
