What can YOU create Wednesday Challenge

Hi Everyone!

It's time for another "What can YOU create?" Challenge. Thanks so much Vicki and Carrie for participating in last week's challenge. Please visit their blogs to see their outstanding creations. Vicki has also created her card for this week!! I hope that you have time to play along this week. You can find out more information about the challenge by reading this post. Remember, you only need two entries during the month to qualify for the prize I will give away at the end of the month. Also, I appreciate those of you who are trying to spread the word about the challenge on your blogs. Thanks so much!
Now for my card today. I started with a piece of Bermuda Bay which I folded "Mountain Style" at 4.25. Next I added a piece of Dusty Durango which I ran through the cuttlebug with the Swirls embossing folder. I cut a strip of Melon Mambo and punched the edge with the Fiskar's Threading Water punch. The sentiment at the bottom is from Stampin Up's Chit Chat rub ons. I stamped the main image from "Wings of Friendship" on Whisper White paper. I used markers, inks and blender pens for coloring the image. I layered the image on to a piece of Melon Mambo and then onto a piece of textured Green Galore. To finish the card, I added some Bermuda Bay ribbon and then did some faux stitching with my white gel pen around the edge of the card. I rounded the edges of the bottom of the card and that was it!
So, I hope you like it. I would love to see what YOU can create. Please join my challenge if you can. Have a great day!

Very cute! I like how you brought in all the colors fo the bird and flowers into your background. The ribbon is very nice and adds that extra touch.
