Hi all

Country View Crafts have their 6th challenge this month.

                                       'Quotations & Sayings'


You can design whatever kind of project you want, card, scrapbook page, journal, art, altered art, even a knitting or sewing project - anything as long as you made it yourself and it complies with the rules. What we need to see is a quotation or a saying - it might be a famous quotation from a book or it might be a saying from a stamp (there are so many out there) but it has to be attributable to someone or a url reference to a web page where you found it AND we need to see the source of whatever you've used mentioned in your blog.

For my card I have blended DI Shabby Shutters, Antique Linen and Broken China onto the back of some Centura Pearl card, stamped the bird from Chocolate Baroque Swirly Birds and used the tail only to make swirls around the edges.

I have then stamped the quote and Bird squares from Chocolate Baroque Fly Away with Me stamp set.

Quote is by Oprah Winfrey and can also be found here.

Thanks for looking,

A lovely combination of colours those 3 & I love your use of the bird's tail for around the edge.

PS - just wanted to say how effective the bird outline stamped in blue under the quote is & how brilliantly it forms part of the whole design. Your placing of images is quite remarkable!!
