Dirty Bird

My title is a bit strange I know. I really like this card except for that bird...he looks, well, dirty. I'm not very happy with "him". But I needed to get this card done and posted this morning. This is for the Viva La Verve Friday Challenge. You can check out the sketch here. I hope you can play along. The hardest part in making a card for me is the layout. So, I love when it is already made up for me.

This card uses Basic Gray for the base. I used the Urban Garden designer paper from SU. The sentiment is stamped on White in Basic Gray ink and is from Stampendous. I used the ticket corner punch and then layered this onto a piece of basic gray. Each corner is dotted with half pearls from HL. The flowers are from Joann's. I used the set Always for the stamped bird and flowers. I stamped the bird in versamark first and then in Baja Breeze and clear embossed it. I then rubbed basic gray over the top. I used my white gel pen to highlight areas. This is adhered with dimensionals. The scalloped rectangle was made with my scalloped edge punch. I stamped the flower in Baja Breeze and then sponged the edges with basic gray. I used the Gray Taffetta ribbon underneath on tied a separate bow on the side that is adhered with glue dots.

I'm sorry that my post today is rushed. I have a very busy day. Have lots to get done in before the big snow storm hits. Woohoo! LOVE THE SNOW! My mom is not so happy. She is not much of a winter person. We'll just keep her tucked inside:)

Have a great day! Don't forget to check out the sketch for MOJO MONDAY. You can click on the left of my blog for details. Hopefully I'll get a chance to play tomorrow. Don't you hate when regular life gets in the way of stamping? Geesh! Just kidding!
