Play time

My Good friend Marie came over… and as always she brought some PRETTY     NEW     STAMPS!!!!  She and I can always spend a day creating cards with no problem at all… and we certainly did…  LOL.. She arrived at Noon… and left at about 10 or so…  so we had a nice long day of creating…  a few meals in between… and it was fun…  

Marie brought these BEAUTIFUL stamps and I fell in love with them…  So I stamped each one a few times… and then started to play…  this one I used just the bird… sitting on a pretty cherry blossom branch…  I did color the cherry blossoms a pale peach… but as the artist you are allowed to do that…  LOL…

I mounted it onto the oblong oval blue Bazzill scalloped background … and then put tiny blue pearls all along the edge…  

Then the trails started… what background to use… and what shape etc… I found this piece of Twinkling H20 paper to use… ( I love to make Twinkling H2O paper… I can spend an entire afternoon making paper… and it doesn’t have to be for anything special… I make it and then put it into a drawer for future uses…. This is one of those papers… )  

The colors of the paper matched the scene with the branch and bird… and then I just started to add embellishments…  I used the Grande Label 4 and also Marie’s newest Martha Punch…  at the bottom…. Then I needed to add some flowers and a bow… so I colored some Pretties by Bonnie large flower and added some pearls in the center of them… 

I love the way it turned out…
Thanks for stopping by for a visit… hope you enjoyed this card….
Love, Light and Peace....Bonnie
