Birds Galore

Hi everyone, did you all have a good Christmas? Oh, Santa was kind to me! I have some wonderful new stamping stuff to play with and I just COULDN'T wait to get started. This card is for today's SCS Limited Supplies challenge -to make a NON-Christmas card and not to use traditional Christmas colors.

So, I used Taylor's Cupcake sketch and made a birthday card. Almost all of my goodies are from Jacksonbelle Embellishments Store -yummo! The image is from Inkadinkado's Birds Galore and the DP is Memory Box Sprout (love love love this paper -delish purples and greens with lovely delicate patterns!). I embossed the bird with white EP and then colored in the bottom details with a copic marker. I then lightly colored over the bottom with some sage green chalk. The corners of the image panel are small white rub-ons from Basic Grey Wholy Cow and I added some white dots with a gel pen.

The flowers are from Prima hydragea white can and lightly sponged with pale plum and Spring Moss ink, painted with Angel Wings Shimmerz, and then I added a green sparkly brad from the Imaginisce Hallowhimsy pack. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, Birthday Basics and is also embossed in white. The white satin ribbon, irridescent edged ribbon and Shimmerz are all from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts.

Here is a pic Taylor's sketch! You can play along here.
