Hello, Friend

Happy Monday and Happy August! Can you believe it?? This summer is flying by. Only four weeks until we are back to school!

Here is the latest Embellish color challenge...it's a beautiful color combo.

Embellish_Birds


So here is my card....I went for a kind of vintage wallpaper look with this....it's a little different.

Embellish with  birds

I used bits and pieces from several sets--the ticket outlines from Just the Ticket, the bird, branch and sentiment from Birds of a Feather, the little leaves from Scattered Showers Additions and the flower is from WMS' Asian Gardens.

The inks are Raspberry Fizz, Simply Chartreuse and Dark Chocolate (all PTI) as well as a Colorbox pink. There is also Dark Chocolate baker's twine, a Simple Chartreuse button and some Dark Chocolate Bitty Dot paper punched with a Fiskars Apron Lace border punch.

I actually made a whole 8 1/5 x11 sheeet with the ticket outline background and came up with three different cards. Stop back tomorrow to see the second one!

Thanks for coming by!
Melissa

I couldn't believe this wasn't DP - you did an amazing job with all of that stamping and the colors are perfect! Thanks for playing along with the Embellish challenge - I'm so happy to be their sponsor this week. I've got one more giveaway on my personal blog! :)
