Curly Cute Aviary


This is a card I made for a private class last weekend. It was the first card we made, so I wanted to keep it fairly simple, but there are a  few details that I think make it special.

I used the Presto Patterns DSP and rubbed So Saffron & Poppy Parade inks on with a Stampin'Sponge. The Early Expresso Taffeta Ribbon creates a soft band beside the Scallop Trim Edge. The Basic Rhinestone adds a little bling to the top of the cage. I used the Stamp-a-ma-Jig to get accurate placement of my birds and the cage. I love the sentiments in Curly Cute. There's a nice variety and they look so pretty! I found this colour combination on my Colour Coach. This is a fabulous tool and I love it already... I never would have tried these colours together, and I really like how this card turned out. I'm giving them away as a gift to anyone who joins my team by September 30th. You can see the colour combination on the Colour Coach below:
