~SOTC~


 Well, my dear Blogland Peeps , I am finally posting my latest cards made a while back for the SOTC group.
(Sisterhood Of the Travelling Cards)
My good friend Carol was the hostess for the months of March-April and this is what she requested from us :

 " The theme for this round is going to be :: Unique :: Special :: You ! "
 
"God made us after His own image, however, we don't all think, 
act or look alike. Of course, we all love paper crafting though! 
So that being said, I would like to have you make cards unique to YOU! 
I would love you to use your favorite shape, color scheme, embellishment, layout ...what ever you really like to use in paper crafting. 
I can't wait to see what each of you create! "
 
"
 For my cards I focused mainly on my most favorite colors in card stock and designer papers...
I absolutley adore this SU d/p...and hoarded it like for evah!...but now, sadly, I am down to just ONE 12x12 sheet left of this particular design! *sigh sigh* :(
Other  personal favorites are: dry embossing tecnique, the use of either ovals or circle dies, and the
punch art tecnique. I also love using pearls to accessorize (amongst manyyyyyy other loved options *smile*) 
and I often like to pop up my main image too. ♥


 Hopefully the SOTC recipients liked receiving this card...am thrilled that I could finally use the bird punch again as it is often left 'abandoned' like so many other punches.
 Also , the bird's feet were purposely NOT used here....lol   ;o)


     ♥ Thank YOU for visiting!! Wishing you a BLESSED day! ♥

I love these colors together! The dry embossed circle is a great idea for texture and the perfect backdrop for the bird image. Great ideas!

Super card design! THis is one of my fave SU papers of all times :) Love this (didn't get one *wah!* but love drooling over it here! I am sure this is a refreshing recollection of your much needed time 'away' in the woods, too - the nature, the trees, the freshness of God's beauty and birds all around! Fab-u-lous work!
