Thank You Goose







Do you have Canadian geese flying by?  They are so noisy but I always love to go out and watch them flying in perfect formation.  The new StampTV kit at Gina K Designs has this beautiful goose in the "Spring Mix" stamp set so I decided to try and make it look like the geese we are seeing every day. 

The background paper is from the Basic Grey "Green at Heart" paper pad.  The cs used is "Pure Luxury White" and "Wine  with Everything" from Gina K Designs.  The goose was stamped and colored with  colored pencils then cut out with Labels 9 Nesties.  The background was chalked.  A Martha Stewart punch was used to create the flowers.  Three flowers were punched and layered.  Small black brads were added then  black lines drawn out from the brad.   Ribbons from GKD was added along the bottom border.  The greeting is  also from the Spring Mix stamp set.  It was cut out with a round Nestie and sponged prior to taking it out of the die.  Each scallop was punched.  

The new StampTV kit includes  card stock, and brads, eyelets and a double size stamp set.  You can check it out here

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Great card Selma. I love geese too and we usually have 100's of them land in the field next to us. We kind of figure they are resting. They are here for about a hour and then they take off again.

Love your colors and I am interested to know how you made those flowers out of a punch. Which punch did you use?
