Addicted to CAS ~ Challenge #210

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. For the next two weeks, our challenge will be

It's my turn to be the host and I chose this challenge's code word. When I chose it (some time ago), I didn't really have an idea in mind or if I did, I don't remember it - LOL! Here's my card

I took a bit of creative license with this card. I turned the circles into birds. What do you think? I punched out the blue circles using 1 1/4", 1 5/8" and 2" circle punches. I also dusted off an old Stampin' Up punch, Two Step Bird punch to punch out the leaves. To add the illusion of depth, I inked up the edges of the circles and wings with Faded Jeans distress ink and an ink blending tool. I used scraps of a deep yellow cardstock to cut small triangles which I turned into beaks for the birds. I found some festive patterned paper and cut more triangles for the party hats. I achieved the rounded edge of the triangles, but die cutting just the bottom edge with a large circle die. I knew that I wouldn't be able to make eyes with a black marker, so I used my Crop-o-dile to punch out the two sizes of black circles, which I used for eyes. I decided to use a light blue for a background and I did use a thin black marker and ruler to draw the legs of the birds. For the sentiment, I used Technique Tuesday's Look Out World stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I adhered the light blue panel to a white A2 card base to complete the birthday (or bird-day?) card.

We'd love for you to join our circle challenge.
