Just to say thanks...


It's May 1st, which means we are kicking off a new monthly challenge at Hello Bluebird! There is a new lovely mood board up on the Hello Bluebird blog for this next color challenge to help get you inspired to join the fun and I've also posted it below. Just like last month, there will be one winner selected to receive a $50 gift certificate to the HB shop... how awesome is that?! Just check out HB's various social media accounts for all the details. 


For my inspiration card I played with the proportions of the four challenge colors, choosing to focus mainly on the pretty blue shade and using the other three colors as the little back-up singers. I used the Partly Cloudy die to cut out the background  and added various prints to most of the clouds using a whole slew of the Hello Bluebird background stamps, which you can find links to in the supply list below. Next I stamped and cut out the Big Greetings sentiment in that grassy green color and glued it to the center of the card. Finally I stamped a bunch of the cute birds from the Feed the Birds set and colored them in the sunny gold and rosey pink shades of the challenge. The end result is simple and cute card that is easy to replicate. :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
