Flower Doily Card
Joining in on the challenge over at Our Creative Corner. The challenge is to use a monochromatic color scheme using only neutral colors and add lace and buttons. I struggled! I am going to do this design again using bold colors.
The lace doily background was created on the Silhouette SD. I created the card base and the dark background by using the offset feature. The floral stamp is from Penny Black and the sentiment from PTI.
That's it for the crafting portion of this post.
Warning: Nature's Ugly Side
I have been traumatized today but not nearly as bad as a poor bluebird in the neighbors yard. I heard the bird just fussing and fussing and saw it flying by a bird house over and over so I went over to check it out. I got close to the bird house thinking I might see some babies but when I looked in I saw a Snake! So I knew what ever was in the bird house couldn't be saved but I was afraid the mama would try to go back in to the babies and the snake would have her too. I knew as long as I was standing there she wouldn't fly in. I saw my neighbor and called out for him to come over to help. Sure enough the poor babies couldn't be helped but that hateful snake won't get any more babies and the mama is okay.
Hope your day has been creative and fun without any drama.
