Random Scrappy Card

Good Morning Everyone!! I worked on this card this morning. I wanted to create something other than a holiday card. I had bought a package of chipboards and I've been wanting to use them. Do you see the bird? Well, it was originally colored gray and I didn't have a "blue" colored one to match my design. I initially colored it blue with my Copic markers but it didn't look very nice so I covered it with crystal beads. I think it looks much better now.

I decided to keep the design simple because I think the designer paper is so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up.

Here is a close up of the beaded chipboard. It was fun altering the bird.

Anyway, hope y'all have a fabulous Friday!!

Card Details:

Paper: Colorbok Nocturne designer paper, MM gray cardstock, DCWV Scallop textured cardstock
Accessories: Colorbok Nocturne, chipboard, crystal beads, organdy ribbon
