It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! This is always a favorite among us crafters because it gives us some visual inspiration!

My card features the Bugaboo Stamps Winter Birds - Scarf image..
I used the colors and bird from the photo as inspiration - along with the cool winter theme!

If you look closely, you can see that the sentiment letters have been "iced" with Glittery 3D Paint.
Also, the Spellbinder frame negatives were left in place, so it looks more like an embossed pattern.

There is also some "icing" on the branch in strategic snow-catching spots.

Here is the photo to use for your inspiration, too! We'd love for you to play along with us!

Now that you've seen how this pic inspired me, let's see what it did to inspire you! Be sure to head over to Catch the Bug to add your creation to the Mr. Linky to play along with our challenge. :0)
