Today is the StampinB challenge for the week. The challenge is to make a card with a border punch. I used one at the bottom of my card and one inside.
This SU set, Every Moment, is one of my favorites b/c I'm so in love with this little bird. I decided to use brayering and sponging on the image panel. I used copics to color, then clear embossed so that I could brayer over the image. Added some flowers, leaves, bling and b/fly. Also used the square lattice ef for the main panel, the nestie backing and the flowers.
Thanks for taking a look and come join us for the easy challenge this week. Click on the link on my signature line and make sure to put StampinB as your keyword.

This is so heavenly. What a gorgeous background that darling little bird is set upon. I think that lattice bg is the BEST for wonderful added texture. Love all that you've added and it is such a lovely note to texturize those flowers too. A refreshing beauty to start my morning off, Pam.

That bird is SO adorable, Pamzi. I can see why you are in love!! And *I'm* in love with that gorgeous color combo. It never would have occurred to me, but it sure is beautiful. Great use of a border punch for this week's StampinB challenge!
