Hi! I made this card for today's color challenge: misty celery breeze, with a dessert option to add a bird or birds to the card. I just love these colors together!!
I used a piece of 100 lb cs from Mark's Finest Papers to emboss with a sizzix ef. I, and several others, have mentioned that using regular cs with those folders doesn't always work; the folder leaves small splits, cuts and tears in the cs. With this 100 weight paper, I had minimal problems with the cs splitting and cutting!! Yea!!
I watercolored the birds in both blues, did the branch in sand, gray and light green, and watercolored the background in green, too. I added 2 flowers that came from MFP and daubbed certainly celery on the very yellow centers.
I'll use this card for either an anniversary or a thinking of you card, which is why I chose to leave some space for a sentiment.
TFL and have a wonderful day!!!
