Hi everyone and Happy October!
I wanted to share a card that I finished up today. My friend asked me to make a wedding card for her to give, and she gave me her idea of having two separate birds on the outside and then the two together on the inside. I thought it was great and designed the card based on that. I tried to show the birds singing happily together with the tree in bloom!
I also used no white or cream on this card (the lighter color is Soft Stone), so it qualifies for Cheryl's challenge. I used a ton of stamp sets and a ton of different inks on this card, it was fun! It's hard to see the polka dots I stamped with Smokey shadow on the Smokey Shadow paper, next time I'll use black. I created the sentiment with the computer.
Thanks for looking!
