Bird Crazy Independence Day


AAA Cards Game #67 is up! This time the theme is "Googley Eyes". Please remember that ALL of our challenges are CAS style.
Our first place winner will receive a gift from our generous sponsor, Stampendous.



I pulled out my Bird Crazy stamps and accessories for this challenge because the birds have such great eyes. I decided on a patriotic theme for the coming Independence Day celebration here in the US. I wanted to give this bird a flag AND a sparkler, so I also used Winnie & Walter's Sparkle stamps to have him hold a sparkler as well as the flag. I embossed the sparkler in silver and the sparkles in gold. So fun!

Please head on over the the AAA Cards Challenge Blog, check out the fabulous DT creations, and create a CAS Googley Eye project of your own. Link up your card, mention us in your post, display our challenge image, leave some comments on some of the other players's blogs and remember to keep your card CAS!

I am also linking this card to:

 Time Out Challenge #59 - Theme With A Twist:


'Masculine with optional twist of mixed media'
Defining 'mixed media' as:
Stamps and ink plus 2 other elements that add texture and/or dimension.
My card was made with stamps and ink, with die cuts, embossing, watercolor and of course, google eyes!
