Season’s Greetings

I just greeted everyone yesterday, ‘Happy September 1st’ and now I’m moving on to Christmas.  Such is the life of the crafter and card-maker, we’ve got to get it together and get going!  Regardless if you sell your cards and/or give them away, it takes a long time to get a good supply going – so hopefully I don’t bore y’all with the holiday card making hoopla.

Today’s card is thanks to two challenges – I love combining a color challenge with a sketch challenge.  Today’s is the Play Date Café #147 and Mojo Monday #256.

September Cards 007

The papers are from Bo Bunny Ambrosia collection (the darker pink is from Basic Grey Lauderdale).  The stamp is Martha Stewart, colored with Distress Markers, Pentel Markers, and Bic Markers to get the colors I wanted.

Here’s a close-up of the bird; this shot is closer to true-life color, and closer to the sketch colors IMO.

September Cards 008

I love being super literal with inspiration sometimes – I actually find it to be very challenging to match shapes and colors I may not have on hand.  Hope you enjoyed and have a beautiful Sunday!
