Lime Green TIME OUT Challenge

It is a pleasure to be a guest designer at 

Time Out Challenge #56:CASE Kay Miller today!

We are CASE-ing Kay's beautiful card (second card down)...
here's my rendition.

(stamp:Waltzingmouse Teeny Trees,WPlus9 Ink Splats  dies:Papertrey Ink Songbirds,My Favorite Things Wonky Windows)

The bird turned out to be a happy mistake...I didn't realize I had green pieces left in my die when I cut the black cardstock.

 I went back and added the missing pieces to finish the bird.

With Kay's inspiration card in my head~

I built up from my black and lime bird.

 I went with a focal window, some splatters, and greenery to mimic the flourish.

I look forward to seeing your interpretation of this week's challenge!

Thanks for stopping in~
