Songbird thank you card

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a card that I made using the new Songbird cartridge, a stamp from Unity, and my trusty copic markers.

My color scheme was not a usual one that I would normally use, but I felt like stepping out of my comfort zone on this one. Besides coloring the bird and frame with my markers, I also colored the pearl accents to match the aqua I was using. That is one the the really awesome things about copic markers. You can easily customize your embellishments!

The nested shapes are cut from Songbird. I really love that cartridge! It has a lot to offer!

I am getting so excited about attending CHA this year. I need to go shopping with Joy and Tammy next week to pick up some cute things to wear. Also, I need to call Kevin, my stylist, for an appointment. I just had one a few weeks ago, but I want my roots to look good. I can't be doing demo's on the provocraft stage with bad roots can I? Which reminds me, I so need a manicure before I go. My hands are a little worse for wear these days. When shooting the last video I filmed for Christmas with the Cricut my DH zoomed in on my hands and I almost fainted when I saw the play back. It was not pretty!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I really like this card. I am seeing a lot of things being done with the Copic markers. I am thinking it might be time to try them out.

Wow! I love those colors. I keep forgetting I can color my stamping. I'm not much of a stamper lol. The matching pearl are awesome. TFS : )
