Po on over to the challenge blog for more details if required. While you are there checkout the wonderful prizes on offer from our fab sponsors:

Now onto my card for inspiration I must say this was a challenge for me as I tend not to do feathers or birds but found this image on my computer sorry dont know where it is from it is that old.
Used some Seam Binding from abaikan few gems, pearls and my cherry Lynn die oh this cuts so well much better than my memory box have to run those through several times and they are not that intricate ones. Kept it simple and left open thought this could be used for few occassions or just a note card. Dp has a flower and leaves to echo the theme of the watering can and the die cut.
Well now it is over to you lets see what you come up with and oh it is my turn to pick the top 3 hate picking top 3 as they are all so good and what I like might not be your choice.
