All I need to make it perfect is some CHOCOLATE! Have you tried those Hershey Bliss Dark Chocolate things? OMG - they are wonderful - and I wish I had some right now! After Bible study - Beth Moore's The Patriarchs is a wonderful study if you are looking for a good one - I got to have a Lunch date with my hubby! I am likin' this! Now to keep my Tuesday's free enough that we can do that a couple times a month! I came straight home so I could get this card up for the sketch yesterday - pathetic I know! Anywho...

When I stamped this bird I stamped the whole thing in Moulin Rouge and then I colored over the red twig with my Green Prismacolor pencils. I also added a little depth to the bird while i was coloring. I could not resist adding just a touch of Stickles to the Berries and "i" in holidays.
The brown lines are from scoring the back side of the green CS and then just lightly rubbing my Burnt Umber ink pad across the top. This is SO much easier with a ink spot verses and full size ink pad. In fact I almost exclusively edge now with just my spots - much more control that way.
Looking back at this card I think it needs something! I may be adding to this post....
