DEC17VSNN: inspired by Wheel of Fortune our card was to have items beginning with 4 of the following 6 letters:
R - red-breasted Robin, real red, Rose Wonder stamp set
S - sun, softly falling ef, Spellbinders die, snow
T - thank you
L - limb
E - embossing
Alphabet challenge letter R is met. Double challenge was to use ink in any way. There is smooshed distress ink on the sun. This is a piece from my stash so I'm not entirely sure which colors of ink are involved here. The sentiment is Real Red.
Yesterday's Ways to Use It challenge was to include a bird.
This was mostly die cutting and embossing. There was the coloring and fussy cutting of the bird but otherwise my Big Shot was used quite a bit in the creation of this card.
I added Diamond stickles to the limb and the tree branches for snow but then realized it was more diamond-like and sparkly than snow-like. So I came back with white Nuvo and added it along with dots of it down the Spellbinders edge.
Thanks for the challenges and thanks for looking!

Lovely little bird on a beautiful bg!
Just because it was HANDMADE does not mean it was CHEAP, because why send a store-bought card that cost $4.95 when you can make it yourself for $89 worth of supplies?

Brrrr, this robin stayed too long and now she is cold. I love this wonderful scene you have created here Catherine, and that fancy die along the edge is just gorgeous! What a fabulous card for all the challenges Catherine. ~Karen.
