Aviary SSC205 CCMC152

Another card! I'm on a roll this weekend! Started this one last night and figured I'd finish before getting completely into my day. I've already done a few chores, and this is my small break before diving into more!!


I combined two challenges again. This time the sketch challenge at Stamping 411:


and the color challenge from Connie & Mary:


These colors were a bit of a challenge-I know that is the point! Definitely made me look at some sets I haven't used for a while!! My card base is Riding Hood Red with a Baja Breeze background textured with the Perfectly Polka Dots embossing folder. Across the bottom is a strip of the striped Peach Parfait print from the In Color DSP pack. At the very bottom of that is a strip of Peach Parfait card stock that was scalloped with the Scallop Trim Border punch. The cages were all stamped on Whisper White in Peach Parfait. Two birds are Baja Breeze, one is Riding Hood Red. Those are mounted on Riding Hood Red. Final accents are a rhinestone at the top of each cage and the saying, 'friend to friend' from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are finding some stamping time in your weekend!!
