Kwerner Blog Color Challenge

I had "one of those days" today. Nothing seemed to go quite right. To give an example, I backed out of the driveway today and broke the mirror off of my husband's car. That was bad enough, but when my DD came home from school she brought me a bunch of pieces of broken red plastic. Turns out I busted my tail light too! I was grumpy before that, and the day continued to not be the best I've ever had.
I decided that I needed some down time tonight. So, I sat down to stamp. It really helps to focus on something else for a while and relax and create. Kristina Werner listed another color challenge today and I was excited to give it a try. This is one of those cards that came out of the blue--I didn't really have any idea what I was going to do when I started. It was fun. I really like it, especially the cheerfulness of the colors (just what I needed today!)

I used "Birds Galore" by Inkadinkadoo and the sentiment and corner flourishes are from Papertrey Ink. I stamped the bird image on Kiwi Kiss with Whisper White craft ink. I sponged some Regal Rose chalk on the flowers and bird. I added some Rose Red chalk to the bird's belly. I did faux stitching around the Kiwi Kiss layer. I popped the bird up on dimensionals and added some sticky rhinestones.

Here's to tomorrow!
