Flutter By Wednesday 190, Winged Things.

Today's a fun challenge at Flutter By Wednesday, anything with wings!  Please note, this is for this weeks challenge only!  My project is what I gave my mom for Christmas this year.  My mom loves birds.  She breeds them.  Has little a nursery set up and everything. A couple bigger birds in huge cages in her den, I can tell you their names, but not breeds, one is Puff, he's white.  I tried to teach him the word Dude when I was in town last time.  She's got a BIG parrot named George, he's blue and green.  At least I think he's a parrot! 

I used my Serenade Cricut cartridge cut out the bird cage first on a cereal  box, at 9.75 inches than again with the pattern paper.  I modge podged them together, So nice to have the Cricut cut things out perfectly for layering reason, added some sweet gems, and dusted with ink to the edges of the papers.  Than I cut out the bird the same way.  The family was cut from a different cartridge in vinyl. 

So, for this weeks challenge ONLY you get to use anything with wings!  We look forward to seeing what you all make!  Make sure you like it back to the Flutter By Wednesday blog!  See what the other designers came up with while you're linking up your creation!

What a wonderful gift for your mom. I have been neglecting my Cricut, and now seeing what an amazing project you created makes me want to break it out of the box and cut something. :) Fabulous job Anna!
Have a gr8 day!

How pretty! I'd love to visit your mom, birds intrigue me! I love Jade, my parakeet but would love to have a parrot at some point.

WOW!! This is awesome!!! Sounds like a cockatoo (white) - does he have a big yellow feather on his head? The other sounds like a macaw and we had one, my goodness are they loud!! We've had our share of big/small birds too. Pretty cool and I bet your mom loved this!!!
