Stamp-a-Faire 2014: Morning Timer Challenge

Whew, it's been a long day.  Emily and I have spent hours in the studio working on the Stamp-a-Faire challenges.  Here is my card for the Timer Challenge.  We got to pick one color combo and one sketch, and it had to be completed in twenty minutes.  I barely made it.  lol  I was helping my daughter at the same time, so that made it interesting!

I used Soft Stone cardstock for my base and Spring Rain, Winter Wisteria, and Blueberry Sky cardstock with an MFT die for the three scallop borders.  (trimmed to make them shorter)  I stamped my sentiment from Little Bitty Bird at the top.

For the adorable little bird, I first stamped the body in Hawaiian Shores ink.  Then I stamped the bird outline in black ink so it was standing on the sentiment.  I stamped the polka dot wing in Hawaiian Shores, but it didn't show up very well, so I took my white gel pen and added polka dots myself.

It turned out pretty cute!  You can see other cards for the challenge here.  I'll post Emily's timer card next.
