For the Birds

It's time for a new challenge at ATSM and this week it's our photo inspiration challenge. This one is a fun and colorful one!
Bonnie is once again our Guest Designer and you know I love her work!  Make sure you stop by her blog to see her beautiful card! 

I loved the chevrons and the colors in this picture, so I combined those two things with the sketch at retrosketches for my card.
Just as I am posting my card, I noticed a little boo boo!  Well, not exactly a boo boo, because it is an easy fix, but darn it all I wish I would have caught it in the daylight when I was taking my photos! See if you can find it before I tell you what it is. :) 
Did you spot it? Yup, I forgot to color in two flowers by the birdbath!  An easy fix, but irritating all the same. Especially when I only have night access to the computer to be able to add in my fixed card. So, if you will for now, just pretend that those two flowers by the birdbath are Melon Mambo, okay? :) 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my error for the day. I say that like it's the only one I made today. lol Heavens, no!

  1. so gorgeous Shana and I didn't notice the flowers-I do things like that and it usually my hubby that notices before I do!

  2. Well I couldn't see the booboo! In fact I think the card is absolutely gorgeous! I love the image and sweet sentiment.

  3. WOW! That chevron piece must have taken sometime, but so worth it - BEAUTIFUL and vibrant!!!

  4. This is so adorable, love the fun image and how colors match with the pattern paper :)

  5. Hi Shana. Lovely card, thought the flowers were meant to be white. :-) Have a great day! hugs Monika xxx

  6. I think that makes those two flowers unique and special Shana - and I didn't notice until you told us because I was so enjoying everything else about this fun card! Hugs D
