A Bird's Song from Artful Inkables
Hello all! I guess everyone has had quite a chilly weekend. My sister (Annie) and I went shopping yesterday....from dawn until dusk. It was in the 40's and windy and raining the entire day. We started out at Cracker Barrel for breakfast....mmmm...that was a great start for the day...they had the fireplace going and it was all warm and cozy...Then we hit the stores...I am just about finished with my Christmas shopping...in fact I bought more than I should have, so I am saving some of it for next year's Birthdays. At any rate, we finished shopping when we could not walk anymore...LOL...I am blessed to have such a wonderful sister!!!
On to the card. I used SU's Real Red cardstock and then patterned paper from Hobby Lobby. I glued the string of pearls diagonally. Used my Nesties for the image and the sentiment. The Holly buttons from Hobby Lobby, MS branch punch and a pearl to tie it all together. I used Memento London Fog for the sponging and my Copic Ciao Markers for coloring the image. I am really excited that I am learning to sponge more. I did it on the last post and I think I am getting the hang of it.
I do hope you like this card. I am pleased. Have a great week and thank you for your comments!!
