Congratulations Elizabeth (beadonthebrain) on being this week's Featured Stamper. Looking through Elizabeth's Gallery, I was inspired by so many of her cards. While I chose this one to CASE, the colors on my card were actually inspired by several other cards In her Gallery. https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/g...0&ppuser=84875
I loved the look of stamping over text and her beautiful blooms.
For my card, I ink blended DI on white cs. Stamped off the newspaper text stamp, then stamped (2nd generation). Used Marvy markers to color the flowers. I also stamped off the stems and then stamped so they wouldn't be so bright. Added the circle frame, stamped sentiment; and glued on the die cuts. I had planned to make a birthday card, but remembered I needed a thank-you card. That worked out well since Elizabeth's card was a thank-you card too.
The orioles, goldfinches and bluebirds have returned to our yard, so I colored my bird blue and yellow for them. I think they are very pleased about this because they really are quite prideful.
Elizabeth, you certainly do have a fun Gallery. Loved all the party favors --- looks like you throw quite a bash. Congratulations. I hope you have a great week and enjoy all the cards inspired by you. And I hope you all find much inspiration today. TFL.

Beautiful colors, Debbie. I love that you did a newsprint background. Great bird coloring and flowers too. All of it goes so well together and makes a special thank you card! I like that you colored the birds after birds in your yard - makes them even more special. Hugz

Debbie, this is a great case of Elizabeth's card. I love the newsprint image you used and how you gave a vintage feel by stamping the images using second generation ink. The frame is perfect to set off your pretty bird and nest.

I thought you must have made this card to celebrate the bluebird couple we have in our yard .... they have babies and are so busy feeding them!! lol Love your newsprint background and that stitched circle die cut showcasing your pretty bird!

Anything to do with a bird, I love. This one and the nest /egg is awesome. I sure like the text stamped background and the pretty stem of flowers stamped on it. Awesome card, Debbie.
