Serene Silhouettes

Happy Snow Day! 

We had a snow day today, yes it's mid April but that is when we get our worst snow storms.  Since I work at a school I got the day off Yay, and I just heard we are having another snow day tomorrow. 

For this card I used the sketch over at Try Stamping on Tuesday.  Love this LO.  I used Serene Silhouettes for this card.  I am calling this my spring in Wyoming card since it looks like the tree and birds are covered in snow.  The colors I used are Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand, and Always Artichoke.  I got this color combo from the back of the pink pirouette color coach card.  The DSP is from the Twitterpated pack.  I wanted to use some ribbon in Sahara Sand but I didn't have any, actually I don't think SU sells any in Sahara Sand.  So I used the 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon in whisper white and I sponged it with Sahara Sand ink and now I have Sahara Sand ribbon.  I stamped the image on pink pirouette CS with whisper white craft ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then sponged over that with pink pirouette and Sahara Sand and added some dazzling details to the birds and the branches of the tree.  I think the brads are actually crumb cake but they match close enough to the Sahara Sand.
Well that's it for now.  Thanks for stopping by.
