Thanks for stopping by today and paying me a visit! I've managed to incorporate two challenges into this one card today - I love it when that happens! :) The layout is using the Viva la Verve Feb04 challenge - the final one for February to qualify to win the outstanding prize from Verve Stamps over on SCS. Also, Cute Card Thursday was to make a 'spring' card - and I think this chicken definitely qualifies for that. This choice of palette is a huge step away from my regular choices but I like to have to challenge myself like that! It's certainly bright and cheery and the sentiment I'm sure is what we could all do with right now - so I wish you all lots of sunshine!!
Onto the card, I cuttlebug embossed the back green panel with the circles folder. Oh, I forgot to mention that the VLV *twist* this week is to use acetate, so I embossed a panel of acetate and sewed it onto the yellow panel - you may be able to spot it if you look closely enough! The stamped image is a new Spring 2009 release from Sunshine Designs by The Stamp Barn - isn't it cute! I used tombow markers and distress inks to colour the image. It's a little difficult to see but the flower is sparkly with Aqua stickles. The addition of clear and green dew drops and the ribbon give the finishing touches to the card.
Before I go, Linda passed this beautiful award onto me - thanks so much Linda! It goes to everyone who posts such beautiful and supportive comments on my blog. Please take it and pass it on - you know who you are! It's great to see you here and hope you come back again soon! Thanks again for all your awesome comments - I really love to read them!
