Stamp Scrap Doodle Saturday

Hoo-ray it is Saturday, and that means it is time for another Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Challenge. Our challenge this week is monochromatic and use your favorite color.  Using one color is kinda ticky and I think you have to use a white, black or something to help. My favorite color is red and I love SU Cherry Cobbler. It is a nice dark rich red. I also love cardnials. Now you know two of my favorite things.
I made some small 3 by 3 thank you cards. I think they will be great to stick in with a thank you gift.

The base card is a 6 X 3 piece of Cherry Cobbler with a 2.75 X 2.75 square of SU DP called Deck the Halls. The cardnial was made with the SU bird punch. I used Soft Sede to ink the edges and a black copic marker to draw the face. The eye is a black rhinestone from Kaiser Craft. I punched three wings. One is used to creates the crown on his head. I can't take credit for this bird. I have see it all over the web. There are so many birds you can make with this punch. It really is a fun punch to have.
The sentiment is from SP & Company. It fits perfect in the second smallest die from the Lables Four set of Nestabilities. I am very happy with these little cards. It always help to create using the things we love.

Please join us at SSDS this week.  I look forward to seeing your favorite color and what you create. 

Have a wonderful Saturday and thanks for stopping,

I LOVE these--when I did this bird for one of my classes, it was the ladies' favorite! Yours is much more realistic looking with the black around his beak! Awesome little cards!
