For the Birds - SSSC160 & HSSTC122

Hi everyone!  What a beautiful day here in Northeast Montana!  It's the kind of day that makes you want to take a long walk and sing.....Gorgeous!  Enough about that, let's get down to business.  This card comes by the way of Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 160 & Hand Stamped Sentiments Theme Challenge 122. 

I flipped the sketch on it's side and used the bird/peacock theme.  I've had this peacock feather embossing folder for a few months now (it came in a pack I  bought) and havn't had a chance to use it.  I was glad to finally break it out!  I tried to stick with peacock-ish colors, but added in some Rich Razzleberry, just because I like the way these colors look together. I see in the (crooked) photo, my ribbon looks crooked, which it isn't in real life.  That bums me out.  I think I may need to work on my photo skills.....

 Apperently I have a thing for combining must stem from my compultion to be a multitasker.  I've always felt if I can do more than one thing at a time, I'm really accomplishing something, which may not always be the truth, but a least I feel like it!  When I look back at my older posts, there are not very many that are for only one challenge.  And, I really get excited when I can combine three this a sickness?  I wonder.......haha!
Here's a list of the supplies I used for this card....
Stamps: Birds (Inkadinkadoo), Pun Fun
Paper: Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade DP, White
Ink: Indigo, Razzleberry, Limeade
Accessories: Provocraft peacock EF, Everyday Enchantment brad, Razzleberry Polkadot ribbon
Thanks for taking a peek!
