Parrot Pals

Good morning all!
I'm back with another sample I made for today's launch of the new
La Pashe CD Rom "The PetSet" On Create & Craft TV

This is "Parrot Pals"
! I love the gorgeous bright colours of these feathered friends.
The grey reminds me of a friends African Grey, called "Bird" who loved 
to eat M&M's from a bowl. He was a corker!
My card is an 8x8 inch base with a bit of matting & layering of plain paper
as well as the patterened papers which are also on the CD Rom.
I used an Xcut punch for the decorative border.

I added some beaded ribbon down one side, this is from Lidl & was originally 
meant for gift wrapping. I love the different strands & I'm sure if the birds 
were real, they'd love playing with the beads! Lol
To further embellish, I cut some of thefeathers from the DP, feathered 
the edges & attached with some pinfflair glue for dimension.

The sentiment was trimmed, the corners punched & then mounted on a 
Spellbinders speech bubble die cut.
I think you can just about see the dimension in this photo!

So, don't forget to tune in to see the launch of the

La Pashe Ltd

"Pet Set" CD Rom on
Create & Craft
Freeview 36, Sky 674, Virgin 748 & Free Sat 813
today, Tuesday 24th November at 1pm & 6pm!
