Chickadee at Rest

It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we have an inspiration board for you. This challenge is a fun cross between a photo challenge and a color challenge. You can choose to be inspired by the colors, the photograph, or both!

To create my card I:
  • stamped 6806-U, Sheet Music in two corners using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide (Ranger)
  • stamped 2708-M, Pine Branch all around my card front in the same ink
  • stamped 211-P, Chickadee at Rest on a piece of white card stock
  • stamped a sentiment from Plate 9900 above the bird
  • die cut my bird using Dotted Ovals (Sizzix dies) and inked the center in the above ink
  • die cut a brown oval and matted it under my white one
  • popped up my main image using foam mounting tape
  • For my blog readers: Enjoy the 10% discount code to the Repeat Impressions Store posted on the sidebar
  • There's a new challenge every week over at  The House That Stamps Built 
    • you don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps to link or win
  • One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate on the first Wednesday of every month

I love the delicate neutrals of this card - and that bird on a branch is a charming image. Lovely card design.
