Botanical Birthdays. part two

Happy Tuesday, blog visitors, Kirsten here.  The first thing I must do is pass on Lisa's best wishes to you all.  I had an email from her today, she is home & has spent the day getting all your orders ready for posting.  Next on her to-do list is a newsletter, so watch out for that arriving in your inboxes. 
My to-do list is rapidly turning into a must-do list & I'm struggling to come up with ideas for new projects, so all I have to show you this evening are two cards I made with the die cut birdcage & birds & the blue, patterned paper from the CWC Botanical paper pack.
I blended distress inks over the birds & added some doodling.  I liked the white cage against the blue, so left this one plain.  The one below I put in an embossing folder & ran it through my BigShot, before colouring it with Tumbled Glass DI.  That way, the raised areas got most of the colour.
For quite a while, I've been telling myself I must get a heart punch & today, while looking for something else, guess what I found in my craft stash??  These heart shaped wings are MUCH better than the hand cut ones I've made previously.

And that's it for now.  The deadline for the October is tomorrow night at 10pm, so there's still time to enter.  All the details are HERE.

The special offers are still available on the die cut silhouettes, as well as the Craftwork Cards & Nitwits collections on the website.

Thanks for looking today, I shall be back on Thursday with a new challenge.  Until then, take care.
