Unicorn Challenge April ~ Favorite Time of Year

Hello Blogging Buddies,

Today is the start of a new challenge on the Unicorn Challenge Blog.  The theme for this April Challenge is "Favorite Time of the Year" and you are to make something to showing what your favorite time of the year is, Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter and tell why this is your favorite time of the year.

My favorite time of year is Spring when everything comes back to life!  Trees turn green, the birds return and the flowers start to grow. Here is my card for this challenge:


Copic markers
Various paper from my stash
Clear embossing powder
Black ink
Faded Jeans distress ink

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card, next I added the blue paper after inking the edges with Faded Jeans distress ink.  I die the Cottage Cutz Victorian Birdhouse die out with white paper and colored it with Copic markers and pieced it together and added that to the card.  Next I cut out the Tattered Lace Fern dies with green paper and added them to the card.
Next I cut out the birds on the Die-Versions Whispers Gazebo die and the bird from the Cottage Cutz Birdcage & Stand die and added them to the card.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the My Creative Times Hello Chickie stamp set with black ink, sprinkled some clear embossing powder on that and then heat embossed it.

Please be sure to check out all the wonderful creations by the Unicorn Challenge Blog Design Team and link up your creation.

Thanks for stopping by!
