Thanks Chickadee!

 Hi everyone - thanks for stopping by! Wendy is our OCC hostess this week, and she has a fun inspiration challenge for us - use this photo of a Chickadee as a basis for your creation.

You could choose to use birds, winter, snow - or you may be inspired by the colours like I was. I just loved all those neutral tones with that pop of red!
Tis the season for Thank You cards - you'll see a lot of them coming up!

I stamped my PI girl on watercolour paper, coloured her with SU! markers and paper pieced her dress.

I cut out a portion of my large square layer to show some embossed Very Vanilla cardstock. I used a bunch of dimensional dots on this one!
Inside I stamped the image again, this time piecing just the heart.

I hope you'll head over to Our Creative Corner and give the design team girls some love (we're looking for some new stampers to join us too!)

Colour Combo: Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Basic Grey Stamps: I Love You With All My Heart (MFT) Paper: Ambrosia (Basic Grey) Dies: Oval & Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders) Punches: Photo Corner Punch (SU) Other: Taffeta Ribbon, Black Brads, Markers (SU) Jamara Embossing Folder (Provocraft)
