Vintage Bird

Well, I didn't really manage to follow my stamping resolution this week... better luck next week! For today I have my card for the Our Creative Corner challenge. We're being hosted this month by the fabulous Wendy Janson, and this week she has a fun chickadee inspiration challenge for us. We hope you'll play along with us!

For my card I picked the colors Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Very Vanilla and Basic Black. I took my layout from the Friday Mashup sketch challenge and went with a vintage style with the Love Letter designer paper and Bliss stamp set, which will be available during Sale-a-Bration. I sponged the edges with black ink and created my bird with the extra-large bird punch, and since the sketch challenge called for using bling, I pulled out black rhinestones (retired from the holiday mini) and gave my bird a sparkly eye and added a flourish under my flowers.

Be sure you go check out all the samples from the OCC team - and then show us your own creation! Have a wonderful weekend!

Lori, this is just beautiful! I love the colors you chose and the vintage look you added. I thought more of the DT would use this bird so I didn't! So far, you're the only one! LOVE it!
