For the Birds

Greetings Crafty Friends! 

Today I'm posting a card for three challenges!  

The first challenge is Free For All Friday over at StampTV and Jennie has challenged us to a bird theme card.

The second challenge I'm entering with this card is JUGS96, a sketch challenge

And the third challenge I'm entering my card in is the fabulous color challenge over at CR84FN using Lavender, Celery and Gray

Here's my card for each of these challenges

It's raining here today, so the photo isn't as clear as I would like it to be, but I think if you click on the photo you'll get a better look at the card and image.  

Card Details:  CS:  Gina K Pure Luxury, Moonlit Fog, Creme de Menthe and Lovely Lavender.  DP:  Memory Box "Enchanted".  Stamps:  Image is from "Warm With Love" illustrated by Theresa Momber for GKD and the sentiment is from "Garden Silhouettes" another set from GKD.  I used a mask to create the background for the swan sponging and blending Distress Inks, Shabby Shutters, Bundled Moss, Milled Lavender with a touch of Mustard Seed.  The swan was colored using Copic markers C0, C3 and BV04.  I then added some white pen to the water and highlighted with a Sakura gelly roll for a shimmer.  I colored white pearls with Copic BV04 in order to coordinate the colors.  The silk ribbon and button are from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving your comments.  I appreciate each one.
