For the Birds

Hey, all! Happy hump day! I'm in the midst of another crazy week here. The musical is in less than 3 weeks, so I'm knee deep in rehearsals.

BUT I did squeeze out a bit of time to play along in the latest Embellish magazine color challenge...this time the focus is on birds.

I pulled out an old stamp set for this one, along with some unloved textured cardstock & this shade of blue which I rarely use, so this was a good challenge for me.

I used Tiff's Sketchy Sunday 008 as my layout.

Hope you like it!

Stamps: Birds Galore (Inkadinkado), Birthday Basics (PTI)
Paper: Close to Cocoa textured, Brocade Blue, Naturals Ivory
Ink: Adirondack Espresso, Brocade Blue
Accessories: SU Square Lattice embossing folder, SU ribbon
