Peaceful Scene ~ CCMC370

Hey stampers!  It's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday and we've got a super fun color challenge for you this week!
Aren't these colors gorgeous together?

This was a chance for me to play with my new goodies from the Holiday Catalog again.  I brayered Pool Party ink directly onto the Woodland embossing folder and ran it through my big shot.  Next, I stamped the little bird from {Sprinkles of Life} in Watermelon Wonder ink and stamped it on Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  I punched it out with the coordinating Tree Builder punch and adhered the bird to a branch using a mini glue dot.  
Next, I added a strip of Black Glimmer paper, which is also new in the Holiday Catalog, and some black bakers twine.  I topped it off with a partial Word Window punch with the sentiment "Peace" from {Happy Scenes}.  A pearl completes the nice little scene.  
This card was so fast to complete.....It could be a contender for my Christmas card this year!

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

  5. Super pretty! I do not like winter in real life....but I LOVE it on paper! Love how you have just the tiny touches of Watermelon in is a bold color!

  6. Love the great winter scene you've created! Braying the embossing folder is genius and I can pretty much guarantee that I'm going to give that a whirl today! ;)
