New toys!

My order came last night and I didn't have a chance to play with anything because it came

just as I was leaving to go out for dinner with some friends for my birthday!

I did play a little today and so far, this is what I have come up with! Not sure if I am totally happy with the card or not. The more I look at it the more I like it though. I popped the branch up with dimensionals and double popped the bird then popped the whole piece as well.
What do you think? Leave a comment and let me know if you like the card the way it is or if there is something that you would change about it. Constructive criticism is always welcome!
Until next time, GO GET YOUR FINGERS INKY!


  1. Hey, Shelly. It's a really cute card! I think, if I were to change something, it would be stamping some texture on the blue background, and using dimensionals on your white matted piece.
    That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it! :D
    Have a great evening!

  2. Shelly,
    I love this. It looks simple, yet elegant.

  3. I agree with Lori I would add texture on the background! I love the colors that you used together!

  4. Shelly, I think its cute just the way it is.

  5. Shelly,
    I love the card, I would possibly pop up his little wing? and maybe add some glitter...if you wanted to add anything..??
    You are doing Awesome!!

  6. I don't know that I would add anything - I think it looks great as is!

  7. Hey Shelly this is really cute just like it is, but if I were to add anything I would raise up your main image panel for some dimension.

  8. The card is adorable! Its great the way it is.

    I am a texture/background not a lot of white space girl.... I think I would have added a few more stamped leaves in the background and raised up the sweet lil bird on an extra dimensional.

    But then again, my daughter always says I don't know when to leave well enough alone....

  9. Shelly, I love the card the way it is. Cute bird! Tamaya
