Bird in blue and brown

Challenges:

sketch-Sketch Saturday
starts with a b-Crafty Catz (blue, brown, Bird, Bling,buttons)
inspiration picture-Totally PaperCrafts
shape it up-Frosted Designs (rectangles, circles)
winged things-Cute Card Thursday
distress-Do You Stack Up
use patterned paper-Delightful Sketches

I used the spotlight technique on this bird stamp from Inkadinkadoo. Hubby got me some new crafts today, yeah me! He got me two sets of stamps, the sentiment words are also from Inkadinkadoo. And he got me a Cuttlebug, yippee!! I have wanted one for over two years. I got 4  embossing folders, this is my favorite, also the only one I have used, swiss dots. The designer papers are from 7 Gypsies, the journey pack. The wrinkly ribbon is from Dear Lizzy. 
Okay and my favorite part, besides the embossing, I took some blue sequins and glued them to the wing. I used my new tombow glue, I kept seeing people talking about how much they liked it, so got some today. 
I sanded the swiss dots, distressed the edges of the bird square, and lots of distress inks.
I used some of my designer paper and distress ink for a matching envelope.
