Stampin' Up! Aviary - Sunny Challenges & Creations


Today's card is inspired by the sketch and colour combo from the team at Sunny Challenges & Creations . 

The colours to be used were Chocolate Chip and Old Olive (plus a neutral) and here is my card: 

I went with a fairly "clean & simple" look....and I quite like the textured Very Vanilla panels against the smooth Very Vanilla card base.

Stamps: Aviary, Posy Punch (note the 'string' on the birdcage was hand-drawn)
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Very Vanilla (smooth & textured), Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Pearls, Old Olive 1 1/4 striped grosgrain ribbon (retired)
Tools: Big Shot, Designer Frames Texured Impressions Embossing folder, Paper Snips, 1" circle punch, Paper Cutter
Adhesive: SNAIL, Sticky Strip, Dimensionals
