Without further ado, here is my card using Rustic Tiles, Heartsong and this week's sketch by Chan Vuong.
Celebrate the Season
I used what I call the "snowflake tile" in the top right corner to represent the cluster of flowers. I topped each "snowflake" with a clear snowflake accent from the stash. The bottom left corner features the birdie from Heartsong- love that little guy and a sentiment from Christmas Song.
I tried to get a little fancy on the bird image with a little rock-n-roll technique. I also sponged in some pale pink ink on his chest before stamping the sentiment in darker brown ink. You can't really see it in the picture, but once I was done stamping, I sprayed the cardstock with some shimmer spray from Amuse Studios.
The paper is from a stack of My Mind's Eye that I picked up a few months ago from Hobby Lobby. The finishing touch on the card is a bit of sheer ribbon from our friends at Creative Impressions coupled with a pink button tied with some twine.
