Warm Wishes

Hi there, blog-buddies. I have a card here to show you, one that took me 2 whole days to complete. Oh yes! Nothing good was happening to it, but I kept going. At one stage it looked dangerously like a Christmas card...of course, the red and green combo did me no favours. Oh Humbug! I reworked it several times just to make sure I removed every trace of festive frippery. I've used Skipping Stones Design sketch #118  for my card. A simple clean sketch just perfect for someone like me to make a hash of it!

Just a strip of DP this time. It's from Basic Grey's "Hello Luscious" pack. The green paper pleated band is also from the same pack. 
The stamp is from HOTP's "Sweet Tweet" set.  So many great birdy related images to choose from. As always, my ink of choice is Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut out the bird using a die from Nellie Snellen's Square Stitching set (MFD033) and framed it with some stitching.
The background is s piece of red CS embossed with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder. I finished the card with some cream satin ribbon tied in a simple knot. 
Simple space on the inside.

Thus ends a tutorial on how to un-Christmas a card! LOL. Anyways, thanks for swinging by and do drop in on me soon!
