CSAYL#44 - Wings of Happiness

Good Morning Everyone,

Every friday over at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog, there is a fun new challenge to help inspire and keep us motivated all year long with making holiday cards and I can't tell you how much I am so happy to be part of it... especially as the weather gets warmer and it is hard to pull out all the snowy goodness of craft winterland :) Today, for the 44th challenge, Debbie has come up with a wonderful inspiration that is kind of springish for our challenge today - which is to create a card based on the pic that a) uses the colors in the photo, b) has lots of white space and c) has a bird! LOve that! And isn't this inspiration picture soooo lovely!?! I {heart} Pottery Barn - as much as I wish our house looked like the catalog, the reality is that it wouldn't last more than 20 seconds before my kids made it umm... "lived in"... Here is my card based on this inspiration picture using one of my fave images from the Wings of Joy stamp set from Taylored Expressions. - and it was really nice to be able to keep a lot of white space :)
Card Ingredients:
Paper: Choice Snowwhite cardstock and Prism cardstock Taylored Expressions
Ink: Memento Ladybug Red and Tuxedo Black
Accessories: liquid pearls, corner rounder, may arts ribbon, spellbinders, cuttlebug embossing folder, snowflake punch from MS, rhinestones from Want2Scrap.

I loved using this sweet inspirational picture and am glad to add another card to the pile - yay :) If you have a chance to play along please check out all the details at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog and see all the lovely cards for this week's challenge!
Happy Friday! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
