Peachy Birdie

Happy Wednesday!  I must admit, I am feeling a bit under the weather, and was considering NOT playing along with Peachy Keen this week.  It is a color challenge too, and I find those very challenging - well unless they are in my favorite colors - say pink and brown??  I have been on a roll though, and wanted to try to play every week in April - this is the last week, so I decided to play.  Here is what I came up with:

This is a 4x4 card.  I used the SU bird bunch for the main image, I punched her out 5 times, I wanted her to have a little yellow beak, so I created one for her.  I have owned this punch for at least 2 years, and have NEVER used it - don't tell my husband...  I peachied the bird using an eye from PK Critter Faces, and used a sentiment from PK Spring Bouquet.  The paper is all from my scrap box, mostly a mix of SU and Recollections.  The ribbon, is actually yellow, but it's a bit hard to see that - it is from Michael's.

Here is the picture that PK got their color inspiration from.  Not at all my usual colors, but I feel OK about my card.

A challenge or two for my little card:
Peachy Keen - color challenge
Oldie But A Goodie - in the garden or on the farm - my birdie could be either I guess :)
Shopping Our Stash - use an element that starts with "b" (bird punch)
Make My Monday - birds or animals

A la prochaine...
