Life Is A Song

Hi there, Diane here today!

I have been in a bright and cheerful colors mood lately.
Maybe it is all the rain we are having and I need
brightening up!!

I made a square 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" card,
a bit smaller then my usual.
It may be small, but it packs a punch I think!

I cut out a Spellbinders Exquisite Circle die.
Using Sparkle N Sprinkle Brown Fizz embossing powder
and Versamark ink,
I embossed Inky Antics Songbird.
I wish you could see the sheen, it is so pretty!

I sponged Spun Sugar and Orange Marmalade Distress inks over
the embossed image using Mini Ink Blending Tool.
I simply wiped off the image with a paper towel
once I was done sponging.

I cut a Spellbinders Cattails die, then lightly coated the ends with 
Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkling Sands Flocking.

I created my flower using the beautiful papers
by Ken Oliver Watercolored Memories 6 x 6 paper pad
The center of the flower is Red Rock Candy.

The sentiment is also from the Songbird stamp set.

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Entering the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin' .... Something Old (cattails die) Something New (Songbird stamp)
