And on the 4th day of this festive parade - we will be highlighting a set from a past release. For April this set is Spring Baskets - just in time for all of our spring cards!
Today - I have chosen to highlight Bitty Banners.
Mr. + Mrs. Bluebird are making their new nest and sprucing up their house in anticipation for the new family they will soon have!
Tattered Rose Distress Crackle Paint and then sponged the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink.
Then I stamped the bitty banners, cut them out with scalloped scissors and strung them up on the sides of the bird house with narrow silk ribbon. I die cut the banner on the front and stamped it with a sentiment from Spring Baskets added a little bling and adhered it to the front of the house with foam tape!
Here you can see Mr. Bluebird bringing some 'grass' for the new nest in his little beak!!
So here they are - all ready to joyfully welcome their new family! I'm sure the baby birds will be very happy to live in this festive little house!
I hope you will check out all the Design Team's blogs linked below to see what inspiration they have created for today's parade! And be sure to check back for Parade Day 2 tomorrow!
