Good-Afternoon friends! I hope that things are going well for you this week. Here in Oklahoma the weather has been un-seasonably cool, cool as in upper 80's, but that is 10 degrees less then the norm so no complaints here! I have been busy re-organizing my scraproom because I just was not happy with the layout, but now, I am LOVIN' my space! Happy Days! For todays card I thought I would try using non-bright colors. I know that 99% of my cards are bright, and very colorful, but today I decided to try something different. So, using Stampin' Up's Creamy Caramel, Choco Chip, and Close to Cocoa, I created this classic looking card. The stamp set is a free set I received from the Paper Crafts Magazine blog called "Margaret". It really isn'y my style, and this is the first time I used it! But, I love the vintage feel to the card. The card itself is pretty much self explanatory, I stamped the background using multi inks, and stamps, then distressed it using the Tim Holtz distress ink "Antique Linen". I stamped the bird cage, cut it out, and used pop dots for the 3-d effect. I finished off the card with black brads from SU. All in all I like the way it turned out, and I love how my pic turned out since I used my newly created light box! I found easy peasy instructions by using E-How. If you don't have one of these to take pictures of your creations I totally recommend it. It is nice to be able to take a pic anytime of the day! Anyways, my little one will be waking up from his nap so I better get outta here. As always thank you SO much for visiting my blog today!
