Two Birds and a Dog for CASE this Sketch and Color Dare Challenges

Happy Wednesday! Appropriate that as I created these cards last night.  As I was creating a card with a dog and a card with some birds, my dog was barking at doves in our backyard.  We have lots of different bird species that visit our feeder, but she has no tolerance for the doves.  She will tolerate the finches, the tufted titmouse, the chickadees, the cardinals, the sparrows . . . but she goes berserk the minute a dove shows. 

I have two creations today.   The first is for CASE this Sketch.  Here is the sketch . . .

And here is my card . . .

 I couldn't wait to create a card with this bird cage die, which was this month's club set at The Stamps of Life.  Adorable little dies . . . and that "tweet" sentiment! 

And then second was the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge.  Here is the color palette . . .

And here is my card . . .

These were some new sets in my collection of CTMH stamps.  I used the five colors across that border stamp, and then matched up the colors with the balloons.   There is an actual break between those two white panels, which has a recessed band of Black Shimmer Trim.  Love some sparkle! 

Now, go get inky!
