Cherry Espresso Party

The color challenge at SCS this week is called Cherry Espresso Party.  Sounds delectable doesn't it?


The card I imagined when I first saw the challenge was quite different.  But sometimes these cards just go their own direction.  It's so much fun go with it.  Especially when I like the finished product!

I used a little glue and Dazzling Diamonds on the snowflakes and the tree.  I don't think the sparkle shows up very well in the pictures.

The little bird was stamped and cut out.  I used the leaf stamp with this set for the wing.

When I was editing the picture, I realized that I used this same set for the color challenge last week.  It's such a versatile set.  It can be used for any season.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Season of Friendship
Ink:  Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party
Paper:  Whisper White, Pool Party, Early Espresso
Other:  Big Shot, Snow Burst EF, Modern Label Punch, Dazzling Diamonds

I'm so glad you stopped by again.  I hope you enjoy!

Beautiful card, but it's too soon to be thinking of snow. Snowflakes are lovely in the air but not when they pile up on my driveway! Love the way you did the bird.

That IS a very versatile set. I'm not sure why I don't own it yet! The Cherry Cobbler bird really pops in this wintry scene, Bonnie. So pretty!
