Daring Cardmakers - Early Bird

Hello all and welcome to the weekly challenge from the team at the Daring Cardmakers.

Our lovely host this week is Miri who would like you to be inspired by the phrase

"The early bird catches the worm"

So use sunrise, birds, worms or anything related the the saying.

I think the bird on my card would rather eat your fish and chips than a worm if you were by the seaside but I have created a lovely sunrise glow to the background of my card.

I stamped a portion of the sea to the bottom of the topper then I used some blending brushes to added some yellow ink to create a lovely sunrise feel.  I also added a few die cut clouds then the pelican sat on the post.

I have used the gorgeous new Waves Of Inspiration bundle from Stampin Up.  I also had to include another favourite set of mine which is the Smooth Sailing Dies as I wanted to add the rope to the background.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend.



  1. That's a cool sea bird and the simple inked background totally looks like a morning sunrise! Great card, Dawn! I also love the "ropes" in the background. What a clever way to repeat the colours of your card.
