Blue Jay

Hello Nomad friends, gosh me again!  It's the 2nd of the month so time for another fabtastic Card Chain Challenge reveal.   I actually almost hit a full house for the options this month, missing out on stitching and stretching my circle stamp to cover wheels??  Well, a girl can try LOL.

I've used Lost Coast Designs PMC Circle Frame stamp on the edge.  I masked with a ripped piece of paper and used two different blue archival inks.  The branch and the blue jay were kindly sent to me by Julia in the card she sent me a couple of months ago.  We don't have blue jays here in Norway but I have seen them in the US. So pretty and such a beautiful put together die cut.  Thanks Julia.  I added a couple of red Cheery Lynn die cut butterflies and the fab sentiment is by Crafty Individuals.

Check out the awesome reveal HERE

Such a great take on the sketch, Gail, and how lovely of Julia to see the blue jay! I look forward to him coming to roost at my house - he probably took a detour to the Virgin Islands on the way across the pond...

Gorgeous bluebird, Gail and lovely pops of color in the butterflies. There are plenty of bluebirds around my yard - currently chasing them away from the blueberries :-) Thank you for joining the Butterfly/Bugs challenge at Allsorts.
