The Gift

EEEK!!! I’m running so far behind here, that I almost missed my inspiration post for the current Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge, with the theme Celebrations.  I was needing a break from the Christmas theme, so made this card, featuring the gorgeous image Gift, which is part of the Flora and Fauna set, found at the CCK Etsy store.  I colored her up with my Copics, then framed her with a lovely die cut in grey.  I lucked out and found the bird and flora print paper for the background, that was even in the right colors!!! I never pick my paper before coloring, so am often frustrated when I find the right print in the wrong colors….but do I learn?? LOL   I also found a bird chipboard embellishment to used, which I colored to match the dark grey die cut sentiment and matting.  I finished off with some daisies and some glitter berries, which also tied in with the image.

  Although this was a refreshing change from Christmas, I really need to get more holiday stuff done…..I sold most of my cards (NOT complaining!!), and the day is drawing closer!!!
