Elegant Cardinal

You still have a couple of days to play along with the Dirty Dozen on SCS. (DTGD08) There were three challenges issued today: Silhouettes by Joan Ervin, Cupcakes by Taylor Van Bruggen, and Sewing by Julia S. I combined two challenges with this card...the silhouette and sewing.

I'm so into sewing lately. I love the finished look of it.

Michelle just got the gorgeous Inkadinkado Winter Birds set in her store, and let me tell you...they are GORGEOUS!! I had to have them right away. This is just one of the birds. Laurie will be posting another one tomorrow. There are 5 total.

I inked this guy up with Versafine Black Onyx, and embossed him with Judikins detail black ep. Man that stuff does detail brilliantly!! I then added a few Hero Arts gemstones and some glitter with my Quickie Glue pen. As a finishing touch, I sponged all the panel edges with Craft White (SU), added this gorgeous ribbon and a couple flowers. Dew drops are in the corners, and Adornit gems are on the oval.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!!
