CUP Sunday

CUP?
yep, Cowgirl Up!

So, it is Sunday and that means a new challenge over at Cowgirl Up Sunday Stampen' Challenge blog!  The challenge this week is Hip to be Not-Square.  So, the challenge is to make a card that is not a square or rectangle. 

I was lucky enough to be gifted an image from Delicious Doodles.  Now, to be honest, it is a robin; but it reminded me too much of a precious chickadee, so I colored it up that way.

So, I made a card shaped as an ornament. The image is behind a treat cup from SU and has just a bit of bird seed in it. The back has room for "To and From" to be added!




Now, for more honesty....
This was my third try at this challenge....see, I was so excited over the image that I forgot to make my card into a shape....lol...I could have torn my card apart, but like it too much, so it will be sent to a worthy recipient.  My second try was a shaker card to remind me of an ornament....Well, let's just say that no one in my family liked it completely.....

So, now you see why I stuck with showing you the ornament first....lol

Thanks for stopping by here to check out my crafting....Make sure you check out the challenge and leave some love for the rest of Posse!  Link up at the challenge and you could win 3 DeliciousDoodles Digis!!

Huggz,
April

Great idea to add the bird seed, and your first attempt was defintely too nice to take the picture off. Love your final card though!

I think all 3 look fab April and I would be happy to receive any. The green colours you have chosen look fab (green is a favourite colour of mine but I hardly craft with it). The image looks great and you have coloured it beautifully. :-) xx

Well, they're all great, April, BUT... the shaped ornament is awesome!!!! Green is my favorite color, and working the bird seed in with the treat cup was just brilliant. This would be an awesome card and gift all in one. You rocked this challenge right out of da house!!!

Love and hugs,
Lorie
