Arrow IC09 - Birdhouses (Inspiration Challenge)

Inspiration Challenge #9 (Don't forget to add IC09 to your keywords please!)

Today's inspiration comes from an ad for colorful birdhouses.

I took my inspiration from the theme - birds. Here is a link to my card:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p?photo=210850

Now let's see what you are inspired to make -- and tell us what your inspiration was when you post your card.

Feel free to translate the inspiration item into a card, a scrapbook page, or another project. Be inspired by the colors (springy), the theme (birds/house), or anything else -- this is up to your own interpretation!

Okay, I got mine done, it's late so I'll just link it and call it a night!
Fun challenge I liked the inspiration photo. I started off with the birdhouse in the background and cut it out and made it the focal point. I hardly ever finish with what I start out with in my mind!

Here's my card

Looking forward to trying more of not only the Inspiration Challenges but the other ones as well.

When I looked at your inspiration image, I thought of all the colorful spring birds but also thought of spring flowers and all the wonderful colors of spring. And spring flowers don't come without bees

Here's my contribution.

Hey Karen, how fun is that to have your mom stamping for your challenge!!! My "Ma" goes by Nana too but hasn't picked up a stamp yet! I'm working on that! I'll have to think about this challenge....I don't have any birdhouses...or do I?!

See this is great -- I didn't see the colorblocking until y'all mentioned it! This is what I love! Thanks gals for playing, can't wait to see what else is made!

Don't worry about it Melody -- I know how hard it is to keep up with the challenges (I still haven't done this week's sketch challenge and tomorrow it starts again). This challenge is all about fun!
