Believe in the Magic




Woooohooooo.... a color challenge with colors that I just LOVE! I could have done any number of cards using this combo, nested blues. I love making blue and brown holiday cards.



In keeping with the theme of eggs, I chose my Hero Arts stamp Merriest Christmas Wishes that features a cute little bird and paired it with  saying from Paper Smooches. I didn't have any turquoise embossing powder so I just went over the saying with a copic marker to tint it a bit.

Please play along with Just Us Girls and show us your best use of the nested blues!

So stinkin' cute! I love it! I love birch trees...we used to have a couple at my parents' house when I was a kid and I loved peeling the bark off of them (of course I got yelled at for doing that!). Very pretty design too!
