OH Wow, Diva Coffee Break Designs #188

Can I just say, I LOVE how this card turned out.  I created this card last Thursday and it has been hard to hold on to it and not show it to you.  It is a super clean and simple card, but is a big wow card for me.  I just love it, I will have to make another one if I ever want to give it away, because I am keeping this one for me!

This week was a color challenge.  I wanted to really bring out the Cherry Cobbler but once I started creating things went a completely different direction as often happens.


I actually started making this car with solid color squares and putting the white bird on top but it just looked too stacked.  It is hard to describe, but although I liked it there was something that just didnt sit right with me, so I decided to punch the bird out of the color first and then punch that bird in the square.  Here is a close up shot so you can hopefully see what I am trying to describe. dcbd#188 close upThis was way much harder because you are limited in your punching because of the branch above the bird in the punch.  But I still love the way it turned out, it was so worth the extra hassle.
