We'll gather lilacs.....

 Well Ok, a lilac birdy. (I can't get enough of this little creature)!!! 

Today is the start of Challenge #27 and we have a colour palette and inspirational pictures to work from.................


 Here's my interpretation...............



He's been a Bluebird and a Sparrow and now he's been morphed into a Lilac bird. He's such a joyful happy little guy, you can't help smiling at him. He's from the adorable PK-267, 'Happy Bird and phrases'. Available in the Peachy Keen store. (There's a great offer on too..LOOK HERE)!
He's a good size too in this set. He measures approx. 7cm x 6cm,  in inches that's 2 3/8 x 2 1/2. 
The DP is by Papermania and is from the Capsule collection. The 'grass' is courtesy of Martha Stewart as is the 'trellis fence'.  The sentiment is part of this PK set. Flowers, butterfly and brads are from my stash.
Please hurry on over to the Peachy Keen blog and join in with us. You can get tons of inspriation from my fabulously talented DT members and there's always a fab prize on offer to the lucky winner.

I hope you like my lilac 'Bluebird'. I look forward to seeing your creations, should you play along with us. You will, won't you. You know you want to.*Grin*

Thanks for calling by
