Red Carpet Studio "The Birds" Card Challenge


Our challenge this week is a card challenge - create a card featuring a bird. It can be anything - a stamp, die cut, sticker, etc. All birds are welcome! :)

This week's challenge is inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds."
Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" debuted in 1963 much to the delight and fear of audiences. The film portrays the quiet California coast town of Bodega Bay which has inexplicably become over run by huge flocks of birds. These birds terrorize the town injuring and killing many. In classic Hitchcock style the ending leaves you with more questions than answers.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Punkin' Patch Stamps! They are giving away a $10 gift certificate to the randomly chosen winner of this week's challenge.

Along with the randomly chosen winner of this week's challenge, the card design team will also be taking a look at ALL of the submissions and voting on their top three "spotlight"submissions. The spotlight submissions, along with the random winner, will be announced on Tuesday October 23rd and will receive a special badge for their blogs.
Here's the card I made for this challenge:

Here's a pair of cute little birds off of the Sweethearts cartridge. I used papers from Simple Stories Harvest Lane. The nest is put together from layering several of the Martha Stewart branch punches. I thought by doing this it makes it look like a real nest. Some of the different layers are from  Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8 & 18.  Sentiment is from Pink Stamper That's Punnylicious and was stamped on the Spellbinders Grommet tags. I then added some Bakers Twine and a flower to finish the card.

This is super fun challenge and I hope you all enter. Please be sure to stop by the other design teams blog to get some great inspiration.  Have a great Sunday.
