After that last post and making you think you're eyesight is failing, I though I owed you something else.
Today's color challenge on SCS was to use Peach Parfait, Early Espresso & Cajun Craze. We could use rick rack for dessert, but I still don't have any. I'm also going to send it over to SU Only Challenges to use punch art.
I hadn't played with my Extra Large 2-Step Bird Punch lately and I had recently received the Punch Potpourri Hostess Level 1 stamp set. These colors worked perfectly with the stamp and punch.
I stamped the bird on Peach Parfait with Cajun Craze. They make a beautiful contrast! I used the filigree from the Vintage Vogue set to stamp Cajun on Peach and punched the wings. The nest is punched from Early Espresso.
I had a piece of Very Vanilla that had been embossed with the BIG GUY and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I used that to determine the size. That piece is 3 3/8" square. The mat is Peach Parfait and it's 3 1/2" square. The final mat is Early Espresso and it's 3 5/8" square. All of that is on a Very Vanilla 4 1/4" square card.
I'll add a sentiment when I decide what to use it for. I think something from Teeny, Tiny Wishes or Short & Sweet punched with the Word Window punch will work well, don't you?

Colleen Dietrich made this card that inspired me to make a nest out of the branch punch. While you're there, take a look at her blog. You'll find lots of inspiration!
