This was a fun card, my dear friend Lori told me I should do this Challenge at Picture Perfect Creations Color Combo #13. I don't have any Basic Gray, so I found some darker DP Gray, and it works.

Creative Card Crew#50 has this fun sketch for me to do too...

So here is what I came up with, I used the black color box ink and then clear embossing powder, but for whatever reason the bird looks different color than the flower stamped in this picture. Oh well! Thanks for stopping by, and thanks again Lori!

Another few additions

Good Morning, just enjoying the birds chirp'n, the window is open in my office, husband/bossman is in his office working, I am sort of working, but wanted to add a few more pages of my Scrapbook Canvas Album on here. Getting closer to being done, then I will put the photos in it. Anyway, have a great day! Happy Craftn' Everyone!

This one page, I used this color combo from Curtain Call Act #30. It worked very well.

Supplies: Paper~Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Kraft, Basic Black, didn't have the pink, so used flowers for it. Ink~Tim Holtz-Distress Ink-Black Soot, SU Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Color Box-Lava Black. Stamps~SU-Priceless, Vintage Vogue, Vintage Labels.

These next pages I sort of scraplifted a bunch. My friend Lori, from Inkingly Yours gave me this paper, thought, it would look awesome in this album. I seen on her blog that she was doing the framed card, so I wanted to add it to the layout. You can't really tell but it is 3D, so it is mostly popped up!
The next one I used the same paper and I went back to my favorite Sketches from Creative Scrappers, and this one is from #56, I switched it up a bit, but it is close. Thanks again for stopping by. I will continue on. Enjoy your day!
