I thought I'd go ahead and get my entry for Bellarific Friday posted a couple days early. YAY! I'm so often scurrying around at the last minute. This is a really nice change!!
I have chosen this cute little birdies on a limb image, Merry Christmas Birdies on a Branch. I stamped this two or three weeks ago, but hadn't gotten back to coloring it up until last night. It's really quick and easy to color, but still packs a big punch (I think). I didn't feel well today, but finally felt like doing something, so I pulled everything together to finish it.
Emily's requirement for this challenge is to use glitter/glitz. Got that handled. I glittered up the birdies' wings, part of the branch and the berries (not my favorite part of the glitz). I also used Bella's ruby red bonbons which I got with my last order. I paper pieced the Merry Christmas banner and sponged some VersaMagic wheat chalk ink. Oh... and I embossed the white background sheet with Cuttlebug's snowflakes.
For the layout, I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. Mercy always has great sketches... I just don't always find the time to work them up. I'm glad I was able to use this one!
I'll also enter this in the Cuttlebug Challenge. This challenge was also for glitter! Love glitter... love challenges that call for glitter!! : )
Thanks so much for stopping in today. Come back soon!!
