Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches

I was having technical difficulties earlier today with my blog post.  I apologize for the incomplete post earlier.


Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2
