Power and Spark Challenge~Go for the Gold!

So, hey, it's been almost a month since I've popped in to my own blog...I've been busily stamping per the usual, but not so much blogging! That has to change it is the last day to submit a challenge to this month's Power Poppy's "Go for the Gold" challenge here.

Admittedly, this is a Christmas card, and I plan to enter it into SCS's Christmas card challenge. It will be in the pile for next year if I can bear to part with it! Chickadees have to be one of my favorite birds, and I was very challenged to color these images in an effort to resemble these sweet little creatures. Thanks to some help online, I think I did alright.
And just in case I forget and want to replicate my own is a little close up:

This image is matted very simply in SU's glittery gold and a cherry cobbler linen bow and Webster's sparklet to finish it off! A bit of gold spica pen to add sparkle to the flower centers...and we're golden!
Thanks so much for dropping in...may your day be blessed!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  2. This is just gorgeous, Traci! I LOVE how you colored your image....chickadees are some of my favorites and they certainly look right at home here on your beautiful card. You certainly captured my heart...Christmas, chickadees, and gold...what more can a girl ask for, right? :) So happy I saw this beauty today! :)
