Be More Pacific....

Pacific Point, that is!  I had a productive day today, but didn't really stamp something for "fun" until late afternoon.  Then, after taking about 20 "staged" photos, I finally gave up and took a picture on my messy stamp table--so what you see is what you get!  This uses yesterday's SCS Color Challenge, Pacific Point, Baja Breeze & Garden Green.  So many beautiful samples out there, I just had to make a real quick one of my own to get the feel of the colors!  I just received a SU order today and in it was my 12x12 textured In Color cardstock!  So that's what I reached for to make this 3x6" card:


Nothing really spectacular; I used the Scallop Square punch to make an embellishment for my little birds from the "Love You Much" stamp set.  I colored the birdies with a blender pen & ink, then punched them out with an extra large oval punch.  The heart was punched with the heart punch; the sentiment is from Pocket Silhouettes, and was punched out with the small oval punch.  I added some white gel pen dots (I need some work on making dots!) here and there, and it was done!  I think I need to color in their beaks though...missed that!  Thanks for visiting!

Super cute, LeAnne! I love the long style of the card, and the way you made the "medallion" with the scalloped squares! Very sweet!
