The BIRD is baaaacccckkkk!

That's right, my friends! It's the FOURTH day of Wplus9's April release,
and we have some dandy fun to add into the mix this time!
We have a COLOR COMBO, sooooo edgy, so fun, so inspired....

Well, I just HAD to turn to my favorite feathered friend... Little birdy from Woodgrain
Silhouettes Additions
.. {I break this guy out ALL the time! - SORRY! I just adore him!}
But he was the perfect way to play with some AMAZING colors put forth from the MOST
challenging, creative, edgy, inspiring and FULL OF FUN, crafty folks... the Play Date Cafe!

Check out the COLORS on those guys! YeowZA!

Since Wplus9 Design Studio is SPONSORING these lovely talented folks,
it seemed only natural! Kerrianne, Jinny, Dawn and myself are definitely
rolling the dice {get it - MONOPOLY colors!} and playing along, but I do
hope you'll check out what ALL the gals have in store for this lovely 4th day
of inspiration! I doubt you'll be disappointed! {Seriously!}

You are the one that sealed the deal with my love of Wplus9 stamps with your bird. And he IS back and better than ever. Love your card and can't wait to play!

Jinny Newlin said...

This is GORGEOUS, Elise! LOVE that sweet bird, as always. It especially looks stunning as the centerpiece of your medallion. And the way you cut the "thank you" apart into its own tiles... Pure genius! Your bit of silver twine and glitter and stitching are the perfect finishing touches! Yummy! Thanks ever so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!
