Damage Control

Here's another card for the Merry Monday challenge.  I love that sketch and it was perfect for some damage control.


I haven't had much time with my stamps and what time I had seemed to be destined for failure!

I was trying to do a one layer card , but the birds just wouldn't cooperate.

It had to be a Birthday card and the holly wasn't saying birthday to me.

So I used the Ovals die and cut out some of the image.  (Don't look too close at the coloring. I think Luke could have done as well.)  Lesley's sketch was perfect for what could be salvaged.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!


Card Recipe
Stamps:  Beautiful Season, Small Script (Retired)
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Basic Gray, Basic Black, Soft Suede, Garden Green, Real Red)
Paper:  Naturals White, Real Red, DSP
Other:  Blender Pen, Big Shot, Ovals Die


I did finally get the one layer card done.  That's a whole 'nother story!  I'll share that tomorrow.

I'm so glad you stopped by.  I'm off to do some visiting myself.

Enjoy!

Birds don't take direction well, do they??? ;-) Oh Bonnie, if you hadn't said you had a problem with this card, I wouldn't have noticed. Actually, I don't notice ANYTHING wrong with your card--it's so wintry and serene and beautiful! I love how the joy seems to be sitting atop the snow.

Bonnie - such a delightful card! The bird looks wonderfully colored and I love the DSP you used for the horizontal element.

Bonnie, it's gorgeous and you're being too hard on yourself. But, I know how you feel when things don't go as we want. I made a card yesterday to be uploaded in a week or so and just couldn't get happy with it. Ugh! Bad feeling. But, in my opinion, yours looks great.
