LOC Sunburst Bird

Can you believe Christmas is over - I hope you all had a fabulous time spent with those you love.  Our family had a great time, it was very laid back and relaxed - so relaxed in fact, that we had two friends who came for Christmas lunch and stayed for two nights - we loved it!

I am happy to say that I did have some time for card making and just had to play along with Case Study, the one and only Nina Brackett is their December Muse and I love casing her work.  This card is a little bit different for me, I stayed pretty close to Nina's card, using the Layers of Color Vintage Medallion art stencil to create my DP.

I used this fabulous image from the  Layers of Color Backyard Birds art stamp set as the main image, stamping it directly onto the Spellbinders Large Oval , that has been cut with my new Grand Calibur - I am having so much fun with it!!

I added  the small flourish from the Layers of Color Creative Flourish art stamp set, lightly colouring it with SU Chalks and adding some Kaiser Bling - I love the shape of these gems!

This card is also for the following challenges:

  8. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
