Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card

Hello everyone this should have been on last night but unfortunately I ended up feeling ill & completely forgot..........
Anyhoo's better late than never so I'm here this morning............though if there is spelling mistakes its cus I have a doggy lying across me who is insisting on cuddles lol......bless him.

Ok so the theme this fortnight over at Deep Ocean Challenge's is I think a lot of people's favourite...........
..........yep just fly your pretties over to us to drool over.
I thought I would share an Easter card that was made..........
Yes I have quite a few wings on here lol. The gorgeous paper I've used is Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics 6x6 pad, all the edges were stitched on my sewing machine.

Added doilies from LLC. The seam binding is from my stash, as is the pearl button on top. The 'Bird's Nest' charm is from LLC.

Added a flower spray to the side with a mixture of dies & wooden shapes. The flowers are WOC from LLC, as are the small apples..........which I think I've had for quite a while now tbh. The 'Bark Heart' & the wooden 'Bird Cage' are from LLC also.
The dies I've used are Memory Box 'Chloe Stem' & the leaf is '0047 Vintage Leaf' from Noor Design UK....... The bird I cut from a larger die containg 2 birds on a branch, I think it's an Impression Obsession die, I cut this little fella out, added a pearl for his eye & popped him onto the wooden cage wgicg also got a treatment of Gesso.

I used  Magnolia 'Tilda with Easter Eggs & Chick' from the easter collection 2013. I coloured this about a month ago so dont have the colours but she was coloured with distress markers.
I also added a bit of chick wire from a stamp in my stash.

As you can see inside is decorated as always. On top of the raffia stuff I also added 'Lace Aurelie' from's kinda hidden a bit so hard to see :-(

Well that's it from me, I'm off to move the bedroom furniture around while hubster is re-building the cupboard in the kitchen which is getting a major make-over at the min. Yeah you would think we had enough with the builder's.........but hey while its in the mess we might as well make more & get everything done & finished. Fingers crossed for arelaxing summer then lol.

Thanks for stopping by lovelies, take care. Hope the sun is shining where-ever you are as it's glorious here.....maybe I should do gardening instead lol.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxx
