Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. I do hope you all had a fabulous week.
The Paper Players challenge this week is being hosted by Ann. Ann chose a fabulous color scheme for us all to use.
and a neutral
It can be any occasion, any style, any stamp set..... it just has to be these three colors.
I decided it was time to pull out one of my favorite new sets. The cardinals are some of the brightest spots in the garden at any time of the year, but especially in winter. When their bright red is showcased against the white of snow.
Here's my card for the challenge.
I really do love this stamp set. Even though the lines of this card are very clean, the background stamping, the scalloped oval, the ribbon, and the typeface of the sentiment, all lead to a traditional feel.
I had tremendous fun coloring the image. When I color an image such as this, I find a photograph on the internet and use that as my inspiration.
- Card stock: Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla (my neutral)
- Stamp: Cardinal Christmas
- Accessories: Always Artichoke seam binding ribbon
- Tools: Big Shot, inks, gold embossing powder, Crystal Effects (for the eye of the bird and the berries)
Don't forget to go along to thepaperplayers challenge site and play along with us.
On a personal note: sadly, my two weeks with my hubby are coming to an end. So we are both back to work on Monday and back to our normal schedule.
Have a fabulous weekend, everyone.
As always, prayers for those in need, and those that need a lift.
