Colourful Ostrich

 Morning(can you believe it's April already???) and I have two DT posts today-the first one is for the "All Creatures Great and Small" challenge at Pearly Sparkles.

I found a smooched background which I cut down and rather went overboard using a slection of stamps,some thread and a recycled Ostrich from a  received card which I thought too good to waste.

That ostrich is definitely too good to waste! Not overboard on the background at all -- it looks amazing and I love it all over!

Beautiful card. The fun ostrich is so pretty. It´s so nice to look at him and to discover all the different papers and colors. The background matches so very well. And this ribbon is so magnificently placed. I´m just enthused about your card.
Thank you so much for sharing your card with the Everybody Art Challenge.
Hug Uschi

OMG I love the ostrich. I thought you had done some awesome paper piecing. He was definitely worth saving. Fabulous card. Hugz

Dee's Craft Room said...

I can see why you did not want to bin this ostrich, he is soooo cute. Great paper piecing; along with your smooching makes one fabulous card.
