Best Wishes



Happy Thursday Peeps! Hope all is well with you and the week is going good! We are the down hill slide to the weekend!!

Today's card is made with the sketch on splitcoast. While blurfing, blog surfing, a while back I saw this card. I had been wanting to try to make a version of it for sometime. This is what I came up with.

I started with a base of chocolate chip, followed that with some whisper white and then some DS paper from the Bella Rose pack. The stamp sets I used are Spring Solitude, Short & Sweet and Wild About You. Unusual for me, I almost always use just one set. The "trees" are colored in with markers, in chocolate chip, really rust and close to cocoa, the bird is stamped with really rust, twice, cut out and popped up, the sentiment is stamped in chocolate chip ink. I added a row of piercing under the the "trees".

I know it looks kinda "Fall-ish", but I love it, love the colors, they are my favorite "family" of colors

I used the swiss dot embossing folder one the white strip and the chocolate chip squares under the main panel. I added three antique copper brads and tied a pretty knot bow with some chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.

Well, that is it for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
