Birdie Blessings

Hello friends!  A quick share of a card that was submitted for a magazine call, but (obviously) not chosen.  I stamped a Market Street Stamps Vintage Wallpaper background on a scrap of white cardstock, then punched out several shapes to arrange according to the magazine's sketch.  By the way, I just recently discovered that MSS went out of business.  SO bummed.  I love their background stamps, which cover an entire A2 size-card front in one fell swoop, in a beautiful array of designs.


I added two K & Co. stickers to it, and that was pretty much it.  I could not get the picture edited just right.  In real life, the colors are more rich, brighter.  This looks so blah.  No wonder the magazine didn't pick it!  Ha ha ;-)

Entering this at a new-to-me challenge, Card Crafter's Circle - 'Winged Things', City Crafter http://citycrafter.blogspot.com/2013/08/city-crafter-challenge-blog-week-172.html - 'Blessings', and also in my friend Jackie Rockwell's 'Lemon Zest' challenge.

By the way, some of you have asked where I get my K & Co. stickers, which I use in abundance on my cards.  I get them in the JoAnn stores.  I just checked online, and they really have a sorry assortment; the actual shops have a bigger, better selection.



Stamps: Vintage Wallpaper - Market Street Stamps  Paper: white - PTI  Ink: So Saffron - SU  Accessories & Tools:  label punch - SU; bird and sentiment stickers - K & Co.
