fall birthday (Clearly Besotted, SSS)

Take a negative die cut piece of PP that falls onto another piece of PP laying on your messy workspace causing you to think "oh, that looks cool."  Move it to the side to work on later cuz you're in the middle of submission call stress, making sure not to lose that tiny little piece that separates the bird from the branch.  Move it around three more times in the chaos.  Notice that the colors of the new challenge at Clearly Besotted Stamps are like the colors in those PPs and decide to make a card.

That's how I roll, folks.

Used the sentiments from Happy Everything (I love the combo of fonts in this set).  And a NBUS die from Impression Obsession "Leaves" with some Coredinations whitewashed cardstock.  The die even impresses veins into the leaf which you can't really appreciate from my photo.  Now I understand where the company name had its birth ;)

It might have been small, but I used clear stamps for the sentiment so I'm joining the fun at Simon Says Stamp this week too.

Thanks for visiting.

Supplies happy birthday:
Paper: cardbase Bringmann, PP Ursus
Stamps: sentiment Clearly Besotted
Ink:  Cat's eye, Distress 
Tools: bird die Sizzix, leaf die IO

  2. Love that woodgrain panel background, Maria - it makes the bird and branch really pop! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!
