Challenge 4 at Artful Times

Hiya all it's my turn to set this fortnights challenge at Artful Times and I have choosen Birds .
My card made at the last minute with the new DI's lemon, lilac and peacock, I just had to have a play with the inks when they arrived,  a wrinkle free background on Lavina smooth card which has some sort of coating the colours look so viberant :) stamped the inkadinkao birds in archival and took out some of the colour with water, the text from Creative Expression is embossed with wow embossing powder and the lace stamp is unknown, to finish it off some seam binding coloured with the inks .

It's been a lovely fortnight of visting your timely piece and I really look forward to seeing your birds :)
Take care all

That's a beautiful card Von, love how you have utilised the new Spring colours to their full advantage. You obviously like them (no wonder, they are fab and I think they are my favourite of the sets so far).
Hugs, Neet xx
