ESAD - SU Unconvention - Surprise Challenge - Louise Ryan

Hi Friends,
Todays post is another ESAD - Unconvention challenge.  Louise's challenge was for us to dust off some of the current old stamps that we hadn't used in a while and give them a new look.  So two of my oldest SU, but still current sets that I use are Lovely as a Tree and Weathered. Both might be retired  though from the new Catalogue coming out in September 2010.  I cut out the shape with the Big Shot using the Top Note Die using Glossy Card.  Then I stamped the Lovely as a Tree stamp in Stazon Black.  I used my sponge daubers to colour the image.  For the clouds I punched a Scallop Circle and used it as a template. Drew the birds freehand. This one was a Winner!!
