Merci - Chic Boutique - Stamping 411

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday and welcome to Jaydee's Stampin spot.

The design divas at Stamping411 have a very interesting layout this week and one that took some thinking about.  For some reason, I had to do a lot of thinking about the challenge cards yesterday.  Some days the mojo doesn't flow as well and it seems to take so much longer and yesterday was one of those days!


Here's the sketch.  I decided not to do a Christmas card, even though the layout was screaming Dasher for me.  So, I decided to use Chic Boutique again.  I've used this stamp set a few times now.  I really do like showing you different uses for the same stamp set.  For me, it's important to get the most use out of my stamps - even more important in today's economy.  You can see the Chic Boutique cards here.

So, here was my take on the sketch.


You can't see it, but I did use Crystal Effects for the bird and other aspects of the cage, as well as the "dots" on the sentiment border.  I used rich Razzleberry and Pretty in Pink card stock and colored the lines in the sentiment border in Pretty in Pink.

Peace and hugs
