BBTB2.....Vulture from Life's A Party....

This week my friend Agnes got to pick the challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 and all I have to say is THANK YOU Agnes.....she will know what I mean ;) I love Agnes' sense of humor and am lucky enough to be able to play with her on two design teams--I am lucky to call her my friend. So, Agnes picked the Vulture on 3-Birds Life's A Party or as Agnes said if you don't have that any ugly bird, LOL! Would I have ever used this cut if it wasn't for Agnes--probably not, so thank you Agnes. First of all I didn't even know it was a Vulture and boy did I feel stupid when my daughter came up behind me and said "A Vulture???" Anyway my daughter, Alexx, was once again my inspiration for this card. There is also a cut on this cartridge that says CREEP. That is one of Alexx's favorite words--I love the way she looks at you when she says Vulture and CREEP here is my project....
Easy, easy card. And I can hear Donna should have welded the vulture to the creep.....but Mr. Gypsy isn't playing nice lately or I would have.....really, I would have.
Hard to see, but I used Ranger Enamel Accents on the Vulture. Now go back and see what other Creepy Vulture creations my teammates came up with at BBTB2....then play along and upload your own vulture......

  14. Oh Maria this is too stinkin Cute! I love the colors and the big full moon is Great! And how did you get a shadow on your Buzzard!? There wasn't a shadow, did you pull and stretch? And I didn't weld cuz I wasn't sure how big it was going to be, lol (and I use DS mostly instead of my Gypsy, the screen drives me crazy, lol!) Isn't it funny how we can "hear" our fellow DT Sister's over our shoulders as we create, lol!
