Card Patterns challenge


And with this one I'm up-to-date! Another simple but beautiful sketch this week at CardPatterns. I love how they keep them simple so you can do as much or as little as you want to the sketch.
I saw on the blogosphere recently a card done in white on white on white with the only color being the stamped image. It just looked so clean and elegant to me, I knew I had to try it. And I read so many blogs, I don't remember where I saw it, so if it was on your blog, comment so I know who to give the credit to.


I started with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for the card front. The I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch for the edge detail. Back to the Cuttlebug for the Circles and Scalloped Circles. Then I stamped the bird in CTMH Creme Brulee and Juniper. The wings and tail are pop dotted for dimension. I found some white satin and organza ribbon in my stash to finish it off. Oh, and a black Bitty Brad for her eye and bling on her headfeathers!
