Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends, Week 6

Hello and welcome to week 6 of our Serenade Series! I'm just going to just jump right in and show you the card I came up with using my assigned image 40, the bird. I knew before I started designing my card, I wanted to make it a Christmas card. I started with a completely different color combo and papers, and it just wasn't working for me. So, I  finally decided to just start from scratch and started looking through one of the Echo Park Christmas lines, and it all just fell into place from there! When I was finished I still felt the card needed something, my husband was actually who suggested the faux stitching! lol. Anyway, here's what I came up with:
The colors are not all traditional Christmas. I actually had to tell my husband and friend/ co-worker that it is a Christmas card, but I guess unless you know the papers and sentiment come from Christmas collections, it might be hard to know, since it is a bit subtle. hehehe.

Ingredients:
Card Stock and Sentiment Stamp: Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper and border sticker: Echo Park
Also, Versamark Ink, Ranger Embossing Power in black, Distress Ink in Walnut Stain, and Uniball Signo white gel pen.

Now, on to the rest of the gals!

Jess, I love your card. The sentiment is the one that gives it away is Christmas. I did make last year some cards with a music sheet background and I did like them a lot. The bird looks perfect in red and your husband....well....maybe he wants to make cards with us. :)Apparently he has an eye for details. Great job all around.

Using music paper or even the music
cuttlebug embossing folder behind
birds is such a great idea. They are
such musical creatures. :) I'm sure
one of the first songs ever sang for
our lord was from a bird.
