AAA Cards - Game 33 / SSS Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes"

As someone who loves the color orange (it's so sunny, warm, and joyful) I just had to make a card for Game 33 at AAA Cards. Look at this picture - doesn't it make you smile?





Here is what I came up with:


keepintouchcards.blogspot.com



Stamps: Technique Tuesday (birds, sentiment), D.O.T.S. (grass)
Paper: Studio G


Aren't those birds fun? After seeing them repeatedly in blogland I just had to have them! You know how that goes... I can't resist things (or people) who make me smile and laugh! The paper is a 6x6 pad I recently found at A.C.Moore. It has these two patterns in all the rainbow colors. Couldn't resist those either. Was a bit disappointed though when I opened it and found that the colors were a little duller then on the cover sheet and the dots are not pure white but more of an off-white. That's why I had to use an off-white card base.

Ha ha, you have just made one of the best cards I've seen yet in Blogland from this cute set, Susanne! I finally broke down and bought it myself - of course, it's still NBUS - and this sweet pieced card is going straight to my to-CASE folder!! Hugs, Darnell

We have much in common, Susanne--love the color orange and ...we love to make CARDS :) Your card is so very delightful! It has the perfect touches with the pattern paper and the right amount of orange! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge!

What a fun stamp! I like the way you did their bodies with patterned pieces.

Love this, Susanne! Those quirky birds look great in Orange polka dots :) I have been tempted to get them too and your card has pushed me closer to making that purchase!

I too have been enjoying seeing these long legged birds popping up over blogland. Think you've done a brilliant job with them, they look fab paper pieced. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

They are so silly, reminds me or marsh birds. Thanks for sharing such a fun card with AAA Cards and our "Orange" game. Cheers, Victoria

Susanne, I agree with Darnell: one of the most delightful showcases of these long-legged birds that I've seen! Polka-dot borders, 'checkered' bodies, grassy tufts for them to wander through: ack! Toooooo awesome! Love this!

Love those birds! They are so cute!

These birds are cool! They remind me of nice stone-birds with metal legs my parents have in their garden. - I think I need to get them - Both, stamps and stones!
I also love bright and "happy" colors - orange is one of them :-)
