Pottery Barn Inspiration Challenge #44

This week's challenge hostess Debbie has brought us a fun and funky challenge in the form of a picture from the Pottery Barn.






The rules for the challenge are as follows:

1. use colors from the picture
2. leave plenty of white/ivory space
3. add a bird to your card



So I created my card with Christmas Stamps from The Cat's Pajamas!!! I love their stamps. My Design was very simple. I cut an oval out of a nestabilitie and created an oval pattern on the white cardstock by softly sponging in Saffron Ink. Then all I did was stamp on the Bird and the sentiment and them added some gold dots to enhance the frame. Oh yes, if you look closely, you can see bells stamped in Brilliance Gold Ink. I added the paper Pointsettia (sp?) with a gold brad........easy peasy!

Want to play along? Head on over to the CSAYL Blog for the deets on how to upload your creation! You could be our next Guest Designer

Happy Stamping!
