My card for the colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches #236

Stencil: Simon Says Stamp
Ink: Distress Ink and Hero Arts.
Die: MFT
Card: UPM and Bazzill
Misc: Wink of Stella.

I have two photos to add today.  At the front of our house on the nature strip there is a large Lilly Pilly.  The tree is a nice shape and has dark glossy leaves but the downside is at this time of year it has bright purple berries.  You can't park under the tree because the berries drop onto it and stain everything and if you don't keep the footpath swept you are for ever traipsing berries inside the house.  But over the weekend we had some lovely visitors in the tree.

Aren't they pretty?  I think they are lorikeets.  They were busily eating the berries and chattering away.  They were nice company while I was out working in the garden.

Thank you for dropping by

  6. I love your sweet Hugs card, Skye, so perfect for the challenge, but those lorikeets stole the show!! How awesome! They sure do have their work cut out for them ~ there are a TON of berries on that tree! And am I crazy or is the one on the right completely upside down??! Hugs, Darnell

  7. Hi Skye this is simply a great idea and created perfectly. Love the effect of the dots looking like confetti and makes the card very happy!

  8. Great card Skye and those birdies are always gorgeous loved them when we lived in Sydney they would congregate around our big gum tree and squark for food, around 30 of them...noisey. [aNNie]
