You Brighten My Days

Good day - we have had some crazy storms happening in southern Florida and I really miss my basement up north eek!  So far so good….

This week's The Challenge and The Color Throwdown were so similar that I combined them ...I think it works out wonderfully!

I used Papertrey Ink's Winter Woods (again) but used the more vintage-y colours and inspiration offered up in the various challenges.

The bird and branch was stamped with Sweet Blush and Classic Kraft ink with the branch having the added Aqua Mist berries…..soooo true to life haha

I popped them up onto the Rustic Wreath Die which is adhered to a sheet of Sheer Basics Vellum cut with the Mama Elephant Scalloped die from All Prettied Up.

The sentiment is from the Scripted die and stamp set.  I added a few 4mm and 8mm clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh - such sparkly fun!
