two birds

My entry today fits in with three challenges:

The Lots To Do Challenge is to 'add a frame somewhere on your work'. I have frames around my birds.
The Sunday Stamper Challenge is to 'make something that features the colour blue'.
The TGIF Challenge is to 'make your own book or use a book stamp'.
I have made a little book with a bird theme in shades of pale yellow and turquoise blue.
I used a pale yellow bazzill cardstock as my base and inked and embossed the edges. The birdcage paper is by Hambly Screen Prints. I machined this onto the cardstock with zigzag stitch and distressed the edges.
The bird stamps are from Crafty Individuals. I inked them up in blue, stamped them onto patterned paper and then clear embossed. I created a little extra dimension by making a separate cardstock frame for them to sit on.

The plain brads and buttons used are by Basic Grey and the jewelled buttons were in my stash. The flowers are Prima and the ribbons by We R Memory Keepers, Fancy Pants and Making Memories.
Thank you for looking.
