And now for today's card. It's very clean and simple, but I like it. I used the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping this week and the color challenge from Stamping Around. After finishing my card, I think the color they're asking for is a darker pink, but this should work too. I decided to add to my stock of baby thank yous, just to be ahead of the game.
I stamped a bird on each circle in a tone-on-tone color. Then I adhered the circles with temporary tape so I could fiddle with the placement. Then I was able to stamp the dotted circle border from B & C Monogram Edition right over top of the colored circles, using dark brown ink. The sentiment was originally a one liner, so I inked the "so much", stamped, cleaned, inked the "thanks" and stamped again. Each bird got a light blue gem stone eye, and I popped up the yellow circle.
Thanks so much for taking a minute to stop by! I hope you're getting as much sunshine as we've had here lately. I have high hopes that all the snow may melt very soon.
