Instead of Texting...

I've had a thoroughly unproductive Sunday. And not in that good "I'm just sitting here under my blanket with a good book and a hot cup of coffee" unproductive, but in the "feeling really horrible for no apparent reason" (suspecting oncoming cold...) unproductive. There are so many different bugs going around at the moment, I already had one earlier in the year. I've seen unusually many people as part of work lately, so probably got exposed to a fair bit of nasties. I'll just try to take it easy and I'm sure I'll feel better soon. Luckily I managed a card this morning before it all kicked off!

Today's card is inspired by two inspiration images - one over at Lawn Fawnatics and one over at Inspired by All The Little Things. From the first image, I was inspired by the reds and the pinks, the hearts and the red bokeh image, which I translated into sequins. From the second, I was inspired by the colour scheme of pink, green and white and the little birds. I'm also linking up with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is Birds of a Feather.


Card: white shimmery card, Daler&Rowney 300 gsm watercolour paper, Neenah Solar white card, Lawn Fawn Let's Polka in the Dark patterned paper
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Love Letters and matching dies
Ink and Colouring: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Markers Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Copics
Other: Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles Nesting Dies, red sequins from my stash

Absolutely love your card. Those birdies are darling. Sorry you're not feeling well. Prayers that you will fight off whatever is attacking.
