Bright and Cheery

It's been wet and gloomy day all week so far, so thank goodness we managed to enjoy a couple of days of sunshine over the weekend. I made sure I got out and soaked up some Vitamin D. So much for summer! Sigh!

In a brief patch of slightly lighter sky this morning I rushed out to take photos - and managed to drop this card onto the wet grass - face down, of course! So please excuse a couple of wet patches!

On Monday I found some gingham ribbon that I was sure would be a perfect match for island indigo and I was right! So I set to and made a bright and cheery birthday card to chase away the gloomies. I gotta say that even though this card is a departure from my usual style (not necessarily a bad thing, lol!) I absolutely LOVE it!

I could, of course, just have used SU's indigo ruffled ribbon but I thought the gingham was stinkin' cute!

Materials used:
  • stamps - Best of Everything, Up Up and Away
  • card - island indigo, whisper white
  • inks - island indigo, calypso coral, lucky limeade, pool party
  • other - calypso coral brad, non SU gingham ribbon (Spotlight), dimensionals

I'm still loving the indigo/coral combination and would you believe I did not use the stamp-a-ma-jig to place the birdie on the branch? Just eyeballed it - gotta love clear mount stamps!

Thanks for dropping in.
