A New Challenge

Good Morning Stampers! Happy Good Friday to you!

As I was doing my typical hour long blog surf the other day I happened upon a fun blog that I have since favorited. Kerin Sylvester does weekly sketch challenges at her blog Stamps, Paper, Glitter and I thought this week I'd play along using the colors from Kristina Werner's Color Challenge for this week.

When I saw Pacific Point as one of the colors in Kristina's challenge for the week I knew I wanted to use the bird from Good Friend and the coordinating paper from the Good Morning Sunshine DSP. Those little birds are just too cute!

I started out with my fairly typical WW card base, added my strips of Good Morning Sunshine DSP and my Basic Black cardstock with little strips of Kiwi Kiss. I then stamped the bird image in Pacific Point and Rose Red and stamped the beak and tail again on a scrap so I could add Dimensionals to them and popped them up for interest. I managed to stamp these without my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line my images up perfectly, but it would have been a good time to use it-I was lucky! I matted my main panel in Basic Black and added some Sizzix Sizzlits Little Leaves in Kiwi Kiss to make it look like my bird was in a tree. The final touch was my sentiment from the Only Ovals set layered on a Rose Red Scallop Oval both from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

Don't forget about Stampin' Up's current Get Connected Promotion!
