Thanks

I made another window card for the current Hero Arts monthly contest and I managed to use the suggested colours, so I am happy!  And I actually like my card, (it was one of those that I could see clearly in my mind).  Let's hope you like it too.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy, Peeled Paint & Forest Moss DI; Hero Hues Latte chalk ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (CG152 Two Birds; CL182 - sentiment; CL361 - leaves; S5316 Silhouette Grass)
Other: Circle Nestabilitie dies

I stamped the kraft notecard with the Silhouette Grass in Latte chalk ink.  I then die cut a circle from the centre of the card.  Then, using two circle nestabilities I die cut the scarlet red border which I glued onto the notecard and stamped the sentiment on the inside.

I stamped, inked and trimmed 4 leaves and also the little bird and sort of created a foliage for him/her to sit on, and adhered that to the once side of the circle.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself!  Wishing you a wonderful start to the week!
