Top Note Thanks

Pretty blue!
Can I come in?
At the Manchester Convention this spring I bought this Spellbinders cardinal die and stamp set.  I have already made a cardinal card which you can see on my blog from an earlier post but I wanted to make this one a blue jay.  The Blue Jay is sitting on a branch of leaves with tiny little flowers. The leaves are from Marianne Creatables and MS fern punch.  The flowers are SU boho blossoms punch with blue crystals for the center.  I colored the Blue Jay with copic markers B12 and B14. The ribbon is from SU and the done with the faux ribbon technique from SU tutorials.  (I hope that is where I saw it) The sentiment "thank you" is from SU Just Believe.  My inspiration is from looking out my window this spring at my birdfeeder and watching the Blue Jays.  First time since we have had birdfeeders that we had Blue Jays!!!! Such pretty birds!


  1. Oh, my gosh! Your bluejays are beautiful! I can't get over how realistic the bluejay on your card is!! Very nicely done!

  2. Great job on coloring the bluejay. Very lovely card. The pic outside your window is gorgeous. Love seeing your inspiration.
