Since I still had my Birds of a Feather DP on my desk from yesterday’s card, I challenged myself to use a pattern from it that I would not normally use. I LOVE birds, but quails haven’t quite reached my favorite list. They don’t come to my feeder, I’ve never seen one in real life….you get my drift. But these little ones were kind of cute, so I paired it with a couple other sets as well as some Patterned Neutral DP, to make this:
Let’s see…..I used mats of Summer Starfruit and Island Indigo; the sentiment is from Blessings from Heaven (what a wonderful set!); the leaves are from Summer Silhouettes; and the circular image is from Decorate A Daisy! I layered that above a naked chipboard flower, just coloring it softly with some Crumb Cake ink along the edges. A little snippet of ribbon tied with some linen thread and a pearl-embellished heart I had laying on my desk finished it off.
I also made this card using the little scrap I “tested” my leaves on…..do you ever do that, use a scrap of paper to try out what a color or stamp will look like before you actually make your final creation? It just looked so serene, so after stamping the floral image and a sentiment, I added it to a note-card sized card in Bashful Blue, which has been sadly neglected since Baja Breeze made the scene:
Love it! Now lets see what you can do with Jaydee’s sketch! Flit on over to the Paper Players blog where you will be able to see the fabulous creations of the designers for this week! Hope to see you there too!
Feeling just a tad bit better (and jumping on Grammy’s couch---which is really a no-no!):
