The Blue Bird - Art by Miram.

Hello to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.  I would like to share a sweet creation for The Outlawz Friday Color Challenge.  This week the theme is Fairy Tales/Myth.   My creation is based on the story of 'The Blue Bird', you will find details of the story here.  I have used the so cute image 'A birdie told me' by Art by Miran, this months Friday Color Challenge sponsor to make my card.

January Outlawz Sponsor: 
Art by Miran.

The team have provided some fabulous inspiration for the color challenge. 
To join us you can use alcohol markers, other markers, coloured pencils, or any other colouring medium on your creation. 
The only requirement is that you colour an open line image. 

Materials used to make this card:

Image - As linked above.

I have used the Spellbinder die Labels 41 to make the 'frame' for my card.  Because of this detail and the style of the outfit in the image, the card has an oriental feel.
Fan die cuts - I think the die is a joy craft die.
Bling is from my stash.

 Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.

Sending hugs to all from,
