Merry Monday #74

Happy Thursday!

I have a card to share for this week's Merry Monday.  We were asked to use the colours Green and White with woodgrain.


My card;


 I began my card with a Whisper White card stock base.  I then added another layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Woodgrain folder and a strip of Lucky Limeade card stock.  I scored the left hand side with my Scor Buddy for a bit of subtle interest.  I stamped the gorgeous chickadee from SU! Beautiful Season on X-Press It Blending Paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink, and colored it with Copic markers and color pencils.  The circles were die-cut from white and brown card stock using the Classic Circle Spellbinders.  I positioned the image with foam tape, then took some Baker's Twine Early Espresso and tucked it behind the card stock to assimilate it"s hanging from the bow.  The sentiment is from Just Rite's Noel Christmas Ornaments, and was stamped Memento Tuxedo Black.

I've also entered this card over at Paper Issues: Put Some Twine On It! and 'X' Marks the Sport: The Twinery Challenge.

Thanks for taking a peek!
