Mix Up Your Stamps and Dies

Hello friends!
I don't know about you, but sometimes I tend to use the same stamp sets over and over and do not mix them up with other stash that I have.
Today's post is about just that.
I took a stamp set Birds and Blooms

and mix them up...

I purposely colored the bird images just slightly (with Wink of Stella clear and gold).
I wanted the poinsettia to be the focal point. The poinsettia was colored with mostly Distress Inks and a few touches of Wink of Stella.  The sentiment was stamped in my favorite gold ink-Delicata Gold.

 The most fun part was adding the Nuvo Crystal Droplets.

I sure hope that you have a merry day as well. I jut came home from a 6-hour drive from my in-laws. Winter road trips can be a little unpredictable. Thankfully, it was a smooth ride!

Glad you are home safely, hope your visit was lovely. This card is sweet and wonderful. The birds--brilliant use of Wink of Stella. Your poinsettia definitely reigns supreme, the birds simply accent the flower.
