Welcome to my blog. Today I’m blog hopping with the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop team. This month’s theme is “The World Around Us”. I contemplated this theme as I walked the kids to school and I noticed myself noticing the galahs (Australian pink and grey cockatoos) and then I thought of the Dove of Hope bundle and thought this is really around my world. (I don’t have a photo of the birds because I don’t carry my phone when I go to school drop off or pick up). I really love galahs too so it was the perfect inspiration:

- Card Base: Seaside Spray
- Card Front: Seaside Spray (10 x 14.3 cm) embossed using Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
- Birds: Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
- Sentiment: Whisper White fussy cut
- I die cut the birds from Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper first and then water coloured them using the Water Painters. The galahs have darker grey feathers on wing tips and a pink body. Rococo Rose was the perfect pink. White feathers on the top of their heads.
- Assemble the birds once dry. Add to card front. Add the bigger bird using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- For something special add Rococo Rose sequins. TIP: add dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to where you want the sequins. Let set and then add sequin using Take Your Pick tool.
As I say, the card is not complete till you decorate the inside and the envelope. I kept this all simple. Inside the card I stamped the bird in Seaside Spray (stamped off) and the envelope flap was embossed.
