Here's the Design Team:

Cathy C  

My project today is basically a monochromatic card with a little pop of blue added in.  After stamping my own background in garden green ink then adding some die cut scallop borders.  I then stamped the birdcage and parrot in memento black before coloring my parrot using woodless colored pencils.  The only embellies added are some brads and buttons along with the main panels popped up over the die cut scallop borders.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
