Cardinal Suspension

It's a new week, and I'm off to a late start!! LOL Every week I have a CCEE card uploaded by Sunday evening. They are not due until Monday, but since I'm on the west coast my card would not be up til much later than everyone else's....like today for instance.

Well, today I have a good excuse. I was visiting my son for parents weekend at college. He's over 1000 miles away and we hadn't seen him in about 7 weeks. We had an awesome time and look forward to seeing him again over Thanksgiving break.

So, onto my card. Dawn L challenged us this week to make a suspension card. You will find an awesome tutorial for it by Beate HERE at SCS. The rest is pretty self explanatory. I cut out my opening with my rectangle Nestabilities and colored my cardinal with Copics.

To see what the other girls have created, check our CCEE Stampers blog. Remember, you can play along too. Just check that blog for details.


Supplies:
Stamps - A Cardinal Christmas (Stampin' Up)
Paper - Cosmo Cricket, Frosted Orange and Blush Red Dark (Prismatics)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Tea Stain (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories - Copics, Nestabilities, stretchy illusion cord
