Blue Bird of Happiness

Happy Sunday Everyone!
 Today I'm sharing a creation which focuses on another die from the Tutti Designs February Release, now available at the Tutti Designs Store ... as well as a few other Tutti Design dies used for accent.
 The dies I have used today are:

from our September 2016 Release ... #171 Bamboo Screen

No automatic alt text available.
from our November 2016 Release ... #217 Nesting Stitched Rectangles
No automatic alt text available.
 and from the February 2017 Release ... #278 Crane

No automatic alt text available.
 After die cutting the bamboo screen from a tan colored card stock,
I decided to add a few touches of brown and green for a
more realistic appearance.

Once I die cut the Crane from a scrap of teal with gold foil flowers designer paper.
Also, I realized the bamboo screen was going to be too tall so simply snipped it in half and overlaid the two panels.
Using dimensional tape on the foreground panel.  OH ... and my sentiment panel was printed from the internet then die cut using one of the Nesting Stitched Rectangle Dies and sponging the edges.

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies in this latest release.  And, of course, you'll want to browse through the store to see what other dies you need to have on hand.

You've done such a beautiful job with these Tutti Asian-inspired dies. I would never come up with these ideas. I absolutely love the crane flying up and over the bamboo, and the blue with touches of gold is perfect. Gorgeous paper in the background, too. Just wow! said...

Well would you look at that! It truly is a bluebird of happiness! Great use of the dies girl!

Lush card! (With the paper you used I mistook the crane for a phoenix at first.) The little metallic rectangles give a very elegant touch to the flowery background. Thanks for sharing your work with the Daring Cardmakers this week!
