Double D and Triple B for April 2023

I have a card to share today that fits both the challenge at Double D "Things that Fly" and the one at Triple B which is always Birds, Butterflies and Blooms.  I had to buy the birdhouse and bluebird after seeing a video from Dawn at WPlus9.  I used the house on an earlier card but the bird is making his debut. 

The birdhouse was cut from TH Woodgrain cs and then I ran an ink pad over it to bring out the details. The bird was cut from white and ink blended to look like a bluebird.  The ones I have at my feeder are much darker but he was done first. I needed something to perch him on and went with Dogwood from Honey Bee.   The 'sky' is Spring Rain from PTI, embossed with a coverplate from STAMPlorations. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great weekend!

Several months back (I think) I saw this video and fell in love. Just had to get the die and the TH paper. I am a bird watcher - have several feeders in our back yard where I can watch the birds from my craft room window. Sounds like you do pretty much the same thing. I love the house and bird but I particularly like the dogwood.

So wonderful, Bobby - looks so much like the Bluebird in the photo! A darling little house, perfect for a Spring nest!

I love your bluebird and "wood" birdhouse, Bobby! I think your bluebird is colored perfectly!

I love it! I'm a fan of all things bird related, and this pretty scene drew me right in when I saw it at Double D. Cleverly crafted. Love the birdhouse, and the dogwood branch makes a perfect perch. We don't have bluebirds where I live but at least I can color them. Thank you for playing along with us at Double D!

Beautifully created card, I actually saw a bluebird here late winter, I think it was confused as we had some warmer winter temps, so I went and bought mealy worms for it to feed on, they were gone pretty fast!!
Thank you for joining our challenge at Triple B and Double D!

So cute! Love that inking on the bluebird and that you were inspired by the dogwood and created these beautiful flowers. Thanks for sharing at the Double D, "Things That Fly" Challenge.
