HAPPY WEEKEND!

Happy Weekend everybody! Last night while Allie was at a Christian concert downtown, Drew was off camping at Lake Pleasant with his bible study group, and John was into some TV shows that didn't interest me, I had a chance to tackle Kristina Werner's Color Challenge #47 of Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron and Whisper White, combined with Taylor VanBruggen's Cupcake Sketch Challenge #61.

I'm not a bird fan but this little bird image is just the cutest! I did some masking to make his legs so short. His eye is simply a 1/4" Circle Punched Chocolate Chip cardstock, and his Tangerine Tango wing is cut out and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
