SINGIN' IN THE RAIN

Our challenge in the Summer Card Class was to take a Christmas stamp and make a non-Christmas card.  I thought the SU Cardinal stamp would do the trick!

First, I masked off the word "cardinal" along the bottom of the stamp and used Versafine Smoky Gray ink.  Following a bird book that I keep in the Tower for coloring birds accurately, I used colored pencils and the color palette for this week.

This "Z-fold" card will make a nice masculine birthday card for someone this summer!
