Case Study #69 12-8-11 - God's Handwriting

Today I'm playing along with Case Study's Challenge #69.  The sample design is by this week's guest designer/muse Amy Sheffer.  Amy has presented us with  gorgeous layered  creation for inspiration.   I didn't want to just case this one so I made a few changes to make it mine but overall the design is true to the recipe.  If you'd like to play along this week you can get all the details here:
I used lots of color for my card layering simple craft paper with deep red cardstock.  I used an inexpensive bird stamp from Studio G and paired it up with a sentiment from a Stampin' Up! Set.  Instead of using ribbon I used twine - I felt it tied in with the bird image and craft paper better.  I double stamped the bird, colored it in Copics and layered it with adhesive foam.  Of course I had to get in a little bling so I added the pearls in the corners, little beads on the twine, and some colored pearls for the berries on the branch.  I hope you like it and that you're finding time to play along!

I do like it, especially that bird image. I like the way you colored it and the outline of the branch in green. It really makes the image stand out. The twine was the right touch, brings out the kraft. Very pretty layering.
