Horn tooting!

Hey all! Have you played along with CAS-ual Fridays challenge 72? The challenge is to create a card based on your blog header. I know! Right?! Such an awesome challenge! So, since I have a really generic (meaning: lame) header, and all the graphics are down both sides of my blog, that's what I based my card on.  I did use colors as close as possible to what's on my blog though. Here it is:

The challenge:

I apologize for the crappy lighting in my pics. I just took them, and even though I lightened them up, they still came out dark. I will probably re-take photo's tomorrow and edit this post, seeing as those main panels are white and look pinkish. Grrrr  (Note: The above pics are the re-dos! Much better lighting!) Anywhoooo, I took inspiration from the colors in my blog and the hummingbird and flowers. (Ok, so I didn't have any kind of hummingbird in my stash, so I just used A bird). Used my Slice to die cut the flower and bird. I really love how this came out! A bit of scrap designer paper, sentiment and a little rhinestone, and BAM! Done! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you get to play along in this challenge. It's such an awesome one! Have a great evening!
