Garden Party

When I saw this stamp in the Cardmaking and Papercraft issue I loved it, probably because it was a different type of bird stamp, love my birds :)  The set was called Garden party, it came with embossing folders too but I didn't use them in today's card instead I used my lattice die to frame it.

I tried to color the cup with some very light gray's to make the cup look a bit porcelain, don't know if I achieved that or not, you can hardly tell it has been colored at all, so I will need practice with that :)

Garden Party stamp by Jennifer Ellory in Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine, colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- Lattice Rectangles and Labels 18 dies
Taylored Expressions -- many mini occasions sentiment stamp
Tulip Fashion bead paint (flower centers)

Another crisp morning with frost on the ground, we are finally seeing the sun this morning it has been so doom and gloomy for the past 3 days, but they are saying more rain Sunday evening through Tuesday, maybe I can talk my hubby into putting up the Christmas lights outside, if I know him though he is going to want to go for a walk instead.

Hope you have a most wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment letting me know you did :)

What???? OMGosh, I love birds and this is so beautiful! It came with an embossing folder, too? Sheesh! Sometimes it's difficult getting light colors to show in photos. It looks splendid to me!
