Hello Chickadee!

I sat down to play with the bird image from the new Occasions mini set Nature Walk, inspired by Our Creative Corner's inspiration challenge (chickadees), and this card took off and was banged out in no time.

I used the Mojo Monday sketch for the layout.

Ok, I know the bird isn't quite shaped like a cold chickadee you'd see outside your window. Just squint your eyes and imagine. I love the layout of this clean & simple card. The sentiment is computer-generated.

Stamps: Nature Walk, Peaceful Wishes; Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Deck the Halls DSP; Ink: Always Articoke, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Basic Black, Basic Gray, Going Gray, So Saffron, Black Stazon, Cherry Cobbler marker, Basic Black marker; Accessories: Scallop Circle punch, Sponges, Aquapainter, Circle Scissors Plus, White gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by!
