Getting into the swing of crafting again

Feeling quite settled now and this week it has been nice to be back in a creative groove.

This card used one of my favourite Stampin' up stamps retired for quite a while now it promises summer and futures to me.    Stamped here onto glossy card that had been coloured with DI using wrinkle free distressing and then sprayed with Glimmer mist.

The bird topper is one sent to me a while back by Valarie.   It was some of her hand made backgrounds, in pink but I sprayed it with the same blue and green glimmer mists.    The ribbon on the left is two blue and silver ribbons layered.  

The card was made with these in mind:
Stampalot Challenge   -   Blue and Green
Art Impressions Stamps   -   Use two ribbons
Stamp Insanity   -   Chilled out Blues
