Crafty Creations Challenge #146 - Woodgrain and Reds

Today I have a card that fits 2 challenges.  I mean, look at these two inspiration photos ... how could I not use them at the same time??!!  Same colours and lots of rustic wood!!

The photo on the left is the inspiration photo from Crafty Creations Challenges #146 - such charm.
The photo on the right is the inspiration photo from Moxie Fab World - Tuesday Trigger - red and rustic.

I started out with a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock and using my Distress inks, created a woodgrain background.

I decided to use this sweet bird charm sent to me by one of my former Secret Sisters! 

 The reds and browns werecreated by using Distress inks direct to paper.  And I do love that burst punch by Martha Stewart!!

If you want to play along with either challenge:
