Show Us Some WING!

Happy DECEMBER!!! Along with the rest of the Naughty or Nice Challenge troublemakers, I'm starting off the month by introducing our latest challenge: Show Us Some Wing. Any winged thing, real or imaginary, is welcome! 

While this challenge will fit quite nicely if you're working away on Christmas cards, I decided to take a break and make a birthday card. It was a perfect way to sneak in a little bit of naughtiness: 

I love these crazy birds! And while I've had the stamps and dies for a few weeks now, it's only now I'm inking them up. I thought this one had just the right look on his face for the sentiment. I kept the design very clean and simple, but putting the main panel on an angle added just the right amount of wonkiness. I'm going to wing this card into the current Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. 
Wings — I bet you have some winged things that can go on a card or other project! We'd love to have you join us this month... and the challenge is open until Christmas! 

Supplies: white cardstock, Strathmore mixed media paper, Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine patterned paper, Tim Holtz Bird Crazy & CASual Fridays Whole Shebang stamps, Versafine onyx black & Brilliance Mediterranean blue inks, distress markers, Zing clear embossing powder, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

The light coloring is so lovely! You make this image come to life! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge!

I love these birds. And, I've added them to numerous "carts" only to close out thinking "do I really need them." Seeing your card, the answer is YES. So, I might have to splurge and buy myself an early Christmas present...again LOL

Great card, sentiment and perfect coloring.
