Bird on a Fence


Second Post Today
Hello!  Today I am playing with a challenge from Sparkle and Shine shown below.  I began by cutting a Cardinal from card stock using a Silhouette file on the Cameo.   I created the fence using White CS, Memento Gray Flannel ink, and Scor-pal and trimmed by hand to the size needed for the fence.   For the background I embossed white CS with Darice  EF Leafy Tree and inked the raised surface with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and the sky with Memento Summer Sky ink.  I added Silver Sequins (snow) to all the leaves and randomly let a few fall from the tree.  The elements were all attached to a Dark Gray card base and then I stamped the sentiment from Power Poppy Stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

Challenges:
Sparkle & Shine Challenge: #22 Photo Inspiration on right.
Mod Squad Challenge: This week's challenge is friendship.
Simon Monday Challenge: Best Friends







Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
