Post #2: Inky Impressions RECIPE Challenge

Hi, everyone!

It's time for a new challenge over at Inky Impressions! For the next two weeks, we have a recipe for you guys to follow: 3 Layers, 3 Embellishments, 2 Designer Papers, 1 Ribbon. This may seem complicated but it's actually not once you work on your project. We would love for you to join in the fun!

For my card, I used one of the newer adorable images, Nickie's Birdie. She is soooo cute! I have so much fun coloring her! I usually don't emboss my card base but I did this time because I used shimmered cardstock. I LOVE to emboss this type of cardstock! It's so pretty and elegant (my own opinion. hehe). I haven't paper pierced in a while so that was what I did on this card. Since this is the current theme over at The Corrosive, this card fits well!
