CD Sunday - S Is For

This week the challenge over on the CD Sunday blog is S Is For, and is chosen by Beryl. I've decided to do S is for Stamping, and used this gorgeous stamp of a blue tit from Joanna Sheen, and the Jayne Netley Mayhew collection of stamps. It also mean't that I would have the perfect backing paper to go with the stamp used. My card is an 8x8 white card base and I used a centura pearl card in green for the matting. I added some pretty peeloff corners and some organza ribbon and rosette to the middle. I stamped the blue tit in Memento Tuxedo Black, and then coloured with aqua pencils. I also stamped the blossom stamp that was with the bird several times to add as an embellishment and coloured these with aqua pencils also. Then I used my Silouette Cameo to cut out the Happy Birthday and Cricut to cut out MUM. I also used a lables die from spellbinders to make a frame for the blue tit. Wynn is still our guest designer this week, and I know that both she and the other design team members have made some wonderful cards as inspiration, do pop over and take a look.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
