Happy Sunday and welcome to a new challenge at


Our challenge this week is "Lots of Bling" and we are being sponsored by Art By Mi Ran.

This image is called "A Birdie Told Me".  When I saw it I thought of my sister.  She has five parrots (and not little ones).  Her birds are just so gorgeous.  One of them is a Yellow Naped Amazon named Sydney.  She is the first bird Rebecca ever got.  Isn't she just beautiful!

I've colored my image with Copic markers.  I was with my sister coloring this and she let me use her markers.  She has tons more than me so I was using markers I don't even have.  After coloring her I added some glitter glue and Glossy Accents for that added sparkle.  The sketch I picked is from Sketch N Stash

The papers come from Bazzill, Kaiser Craft, My Minds Eye and some generic.  The ribbon is Darice and the pearls are from my stash. 

I hope you will head over to the CWWC challenge blog and see what the other DT members have created to inspire you.  Also, our blog has a whole new look.  You're going to love it.  Hope to see you in the challenge this fortnight.

What a wonderful card! The color palette was so unique and I really liked the variety of patterned paper you included. Your Copic coloring skills are amazing and I love how you made the bird on your card look just like Sydney! The roses are lovely, too, and the pearls add just the right bit of dimension. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
