Merry Monday #35 - Black Bird

Happy Weekend Stampers,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge this week.  I masked off the greeting on the main image and stamped only the trees and bird. When it was dry I spritzed with some Gold Glimmer Mist.   Embossed the Very Vanilla Mat and the Wild Wasabi banner.  I used sponges on both pieces, matted with the Champagne Glimmer Paper. I finished off the sentiment with three punches and added some stamped trees and sponging to the inside.

Thanks to Wendy this card was awarded an Honourable Mention this week at Merry Monday Challenges.
