Take Flight

Hi Everyone!!  Today JustRite are featuring the new Font called Myriad-Pro.  The one I have used today is the 50pt Font and comes with both Upper Case and Lower Case in the one pack!!!  Now you have the convenience of being able to use upper and lower in the one sentiment or verse and only buy one set!  If you want your Font bigger (perfect for scrapbooking) - it also comes in 95pt!!!  I've also used another of the new birds from the Backyard Birds set, this time it is the American Goldfinch.  This card is also for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge - what an awesome sketch this week!!  :)

I started with a base of yellow bazzill and layered with black and some Fly a Kite DSP.  I've stamped the first part of the sentiment in the top corner using Myriad-Pro 50pt Font in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The next two panels are more DSP and more yellow bazzill, both matted with black.  On the yellow panel I've stamped the second part of the sentiment using the same Font.  Across these two panels I've attached some white satin ribbon.  The image is the American Goldfinch from the Backyard Birds set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Y11, Y15, Y17, C1, C3, C5, E53, G12, G24, G28, V01, V15, V17, 0).  Although this set is designed for the Large Circle Nestabilites, I've actually cut it with Small Oval Nestabilities and matted it with hazel and black bazzill cut with Label 12 Nestabilties and then popped up on foam tape.  I finished by adding a small white bow to the side and some white pearls to the corner.

Another gorgeous colored bird Kathy! Those purple thistles look great too but I know they are bothersome when they get stuck in your sweater :)
