Golden Summer

Hello!  I am back finally with a quick card for the Monochromatic challenge at A Vintage Journey.  I am working on a second monochromatic card. (So stay tuned)  This also reflects how our summer fun happens around here. Lot's of outside gardening with many birds chirping and sharing their nests in our trees.  The Anything But Cute Challenge is Summer Fun.

The birds are cooing, singing, chirping and crowing all night and day around here.  It starts in the spring and continues through the summer. 

I decided that  yellow was a happy color to use for my monochromatic colors.  I started with the mini stencil and sprayed a mix of the mustard seed, squeezed lemonade, fossilized amber over the stencil to get my fun circles. I then stamped the bird and colored with the same spray colors.  I have pieces of bark off the trees on my desk in a bowl and thought it would be fun to use behind the bird.

Thanks for stopping by!
