Blue & Gold Chickadee


I made this card for 3 challenges...
The challenge at The Paper Players was to use gold or silver.  I embossed the bird image, the sentiment and the edges with gold.
Which fit right in with the technique at Splitcoast to emboss the edges.  I used a versamark pen around the edge of the kraft paper and embossed it.  I also sponged with blue.  The sentiment is popped up over the decorative label punch and I added two pearls.
I got the layout from Sketch Frenzy Friday.

I am submitting this card for the design team tryout at The Paper Players.
