Embellish Magazine: Color Trends Challenge with Birds

Hi bloggers! I was supposed to post this last night but didn't have the time to. It's been such a gloomy day today. I think it's one of the things I don't like about New York. There are a lot of "gray" days. Hopefully tomorrow will be nice and sunny. Have any of you ever watched Super Size Me?! I was watching the documentary last night, and I must say, I don't want to eat McDonald's for a while. This guy who absolutely healthy, ate McDonald's for 1 month to see what it would do to him. He gained sooo much weight in a month's time and his blood tests were so bad that he had managed to damage his liver just by eating all that fast good. WOW. It was scary to watch. I was afraid he was going to develop a heart condition or something! 

Anyway, for Embellish Magazine's Color Trends Challenge with Birds, they have dark earthy colors with blue gray in it. I thought it was beautiful. 

Here's my card. I tried to stay as close to the colors as possible. I used some Waltzingmouse Stamps, Papertrey Ink, and WPlus9 Stamps for this one. I like how it turned out. 

I also got my Cards Magazine (March) today. It's such a wonderful issue! You have to grab one! A lot of our online friends are starting to have their cards published. It makes me smile every time I see a familiar name there. I saw Cristina, Maureen, Lindsay, Lea, Belinda, and soooo many more!!! I was oooh-ing and ahhhh-ing at almost every page! I have to try to send more of my stuff there too! :)

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back later. I'll try to join another challenge! :) See ya!


  1. You did such a beautiful job with this challenge, and those WPlus9 stamps! I still have the Woodgrain Additions on my wish list. I love the way you tucked the branches behind the main panel. So many pretty details on this one!

  2. Your card is so beautiful, great job. I love the color combo.

  3. Totally love your card Jean! You rock this colour challenge ;)
    I'll try and have a go at this one myself this week I think - it'll be my first challenge entry as I'm only just entering into the blogosphere myself. Here's my link:
    Thanks for your inspiration! Hugs, Ruth S
