Here's the Design Team:

Cathy C  

For my project today, I decided to go with a little scenic stamping and combined the new Birds of the Orient and Marsh Birds along with some Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink and koh-i-noor pencils with a blender marker.  For a little extra dimension, I added some punched flowers and a punched butterfly highlighted with ice stickles.

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

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
