Power Poppy November Challenge~Embellish This!

For today's card, I am participating in this month's "Power and Spark Challenge!" over on the Power Poppy blog!I have been stamping and will have a few cards to add to this collection soon. Here in Colorado, we woke up to a cold frost on the last of the autumnal leaves remaining on the trees.I don't know if I am quite ready for the bundling up of winter...but I can celebrate the coming season with a new card! This is a set from Flourishes (which is retired, but I heard, coming back?)...and I love these sweet birds. I attempted a little more masculine look to my card, then I had to add pearls, but I kept them masculine, because they are brown, right? I mean men do like brown pearls, I'm certain. Ha! My embellishments are pretty obvious...thanks so much for stopping in and taking a look!

I used retired SU! designer paper, colored in with copics, added a wink of stella clear pen over the branches, brown ribbon, pearls, and a snowflake die cut with pearly brown center! I hope you're staying cozy wherever you are!


  1. BEAUTIFUL! Love your design and fabby Christmas colours and of course your embellishments are the perfect accent!! Thanks for playing along with Power Poppy this month!! :)

  2. It totally has a warm and cozy feel Traci...I’ve always loved these birds too. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Power Poppy!

  3. Your coloring of the birds is so pretty and perfect, Traci! I'm never quite certain how to color realistic birds. These even look all soft and feathery. Beautiful card, and I'm so happy to see it in our challenge!

  4. Oh, Traci, what a beautiful card, and I just love these precious birds. I love the beautiful coloring and the great layout with the DP, and the pearls are definitely masculine with the dark brown. I've always loved all Marcella Hawley's artwork! Stunning, my friend! Hugs!


Thanks for stopping by, your comments are a treasured part of my day!!
