A Visit to My Old Friends

My visit to my old friends was a silent one.  No, there wasn't any chit chat or coffee or drinks.

I was just digging through my stash and tried to give some of them love!

I really wanted to play along with the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge (Creme Brulee and Juniper), but my first couple of attempts were a total disaster.  Something was wrong and I could not explain.  I let my ideas sit for a while and came back to my craft desk.  In between I dug my stash and looked for supplies that I have forgotten about.  There they are - the birdie, the paper flowers, and the blings!

I totally forgot about this bird from Sophie Workshop on the Go and the sentiment from Elemental Workshop on the Go.  They go with each other well!

The card is based on a sketch from Deconstructed Sketch 102:

This card is also entering the challenge at Heart 2 Heart - creature feature.

I'm really happy with this card.  What makes me more happy is that those disastrous attempts were all trials and errors for the card I'd like.  If you ever get into this situation, hang in there and keep trying!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I'd say your "visit to old friends" was a big success! Love the two-tone stamping on the bird, and the sketch you used. Beautiful job with this week's challenge colours, on the cocoa card base. Thanks for linking up with Color My Heart.

  2. Very pretty card, Joyce! I love that bird-it's so pretty! You did a great job of following the sketch. It's nice to see your artwork in the Color Dare gallery again.

  3. Way to go back to your old WOTGs! They go together so well. I love that bird, but I don't have that stamp. :( Your card is really eye-catching in its design! Great job! Thanks for playing at Color My Heart!
