Red Robin...

A beautiful photo of a lovely little bird!

I've created this card for the challenge over at Our Creative Corner

Like most of my cards, I've tried to keep it for any occasion, ie Birthday, Sympathy, Thank You, etc  I find this works easiest for me, then I am not having to try & think of a card to make at the last moment.  I will also make a lot of cards with no sentiment/greeting so that when I do need a card in a hurry, I then stamp a sentiment/greeting, either directly onto the card or adhere one to the card.

For my card -
Cut base card using Chocolate Chip Cardstock
Cut smaller piece of Cardstock using Riding Hood Red & adhere to base card
Cut Cardstock using Chocolate Chip - 4" x 2 1/2"
Cut piece of Garden Green Cardstock - 3 7/8" x 2 3/8
Adhere Garden Green to Chocolate Chip
Cut piece of Watercolour Paper - 3 3/4" x 2 1/4"
Stamp image using Chocolate Chip Ink
Using Aqua Painter, Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red & Garden Green Inks, colour image
Adhere Watercolour Paper to Garden Green piece of Cardstock
Attach Brad to middle piece of ribbon
Attach ribbon across bottom of image & tuck ends under
Attach whole section to the base card
Stamp sentiment/greeting using Chocolate Chip Cardstock & punch using Oval Punch
Punch piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock using larger Oval Punch
Punch piece of Garden Green Cardstock using Scallop Oval Punch
Adhere all 3 pieces together
Adhere to RH bottom of card

Inks - Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Riding Hood Red
Cardstock - Watercolour Paper, Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Garden Green

Great job on the Hey Chickadee challenge! Wonderful colors and lovely image - I like the pale watercolor feel to your coloring. Cool ribbon treatment too. So happy you could join in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
