Just Add Ink #40 - Delicate Blossom

Hi Friends,
Today I have created a card for this weeks colour challenge at Just Add Ink.  After much surfing on the net and checking out lots of blogs trying to catch up on everyone's posts while I was away in Tasmania, I found Browyn Eastleys tutorial on a Scallop Circle Easel Card.  I thought I would give it a go and this is the card I came up with.  It reminds me of the Fairy Wrens, that just poped out from anywhere when you stopped the car to have a look around and the beautiful blossom we saw in Tasmania. I just loved watching them flitting about.  At home we only occassionaly see the Blue Wrens a couple of times a year so it was a real treat.
Stamps: Cheep Talk, Oval All
Card: Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Sahara Sand, Bashful Blue, Pear Pizzazz
Embellishments: Pearls, Blushing Bride Ribbon
Tools: Big Shot, Scallop Circle Die, Circle Scissor Plus, Small and Large Oval Punches, Scallop Oval Punch, Trio Flower Punch (R), Scallop Circle Punch, Sponges, Embossing Tool and Computer Mouse Mat, Dimensionals, 2 Way Glue Pen, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool
Hope you are all enjoying your day. Let me know if you like it.
