Teapot Tuesday & CC
I still had this DP on my desk from yesterday's card when I checked the Color Challenge on SCS - I jumped with joy! Julia chose Marina Mist, Baja Breeze & Certainly Celery - perfect to use this same DP! The optional dessert was to use a bird on our card. The Teapot Tuesday Challenge is to create a girly girl, feminine card with ribbon...we can't get in the door to the party unless we bring ribbon! All girls like some bling and flowers, so had to add those embellishments! The destination is a fellow stamper, Ashley Finical from Mt. Vernon, IN, that lost her stamping supplies when her house was recently flooded. Not only will I send her this card, but I intend to send a box of supplies as well! Can you imagine her postal carrier when these packages start arriving - lol! I used Karen Giron's great sketch for the layout. I love this sentiment by Emily Dickinson and wanted to use it as the focal point. What else did I use?
STAMPS: Feathered Hope (SU)
PAPER: TC Cottage Garden by K&Co, Pear Pizzazz, Pacific Point, Neenah Solar White
INK: Versafine Onyx Black, Chocolate Chip (to sponge the bird's edges)
