Little Acorn Bird

Hello, friends.  A special thank you to all my new followers!  Today's card is a little different for me - it's a clean and simple, one-layer card.  I don't do a lot of CAS cards as I usually want to keep adding embellishments, but I held myself back LOL.  The image I used today is called Little Acorn Bird from Sami Stamps and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.  The kraft cardstock is from Stampin' Up, and I added a stamped sentiment from Hero Arts and some Offray ribbon. 

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

It is so lovely to see how you embrace so many different styles and techniques Kitty and you always do so with such beauty. This card is very different from any others I've enjoyed when visiting you but my goodness, it's lovely .....and I say that as someone who is terrified of birds :-) The natural colours are a real pleasure to look at as they are so appropriate to the subject of this card. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )

Beautiful CAS card. Thanks for joining us in the Parade Your Crafts Blog challenge.

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

Wow! I love the gorgeous simplicity of this card! And I am floored that you colored the image with Prismacolor pencils! You've got some major skill to blend the shades and tones so beautifully! And the ribbon is just the right bit of dimension! Great piece and I smiled at how you tied it into our Mystery Theme. If only I'd paid attention more in Girl Scouts when we went bird watching I might know the answer to your mystery question! :) Thanks for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
