Discover Your Wings - Inspiration Challenge

Good Evening!
Well today has been CRAZY! With snow that is! I can't believe the snow we have gotten in the past day...it's unreal! It looks like we have had winter for months and not 24 hours...lol
Other than digging out today I didn't go anywhere. So I stamped this evening after getting our Christmas tree up!!! Chloe did a fabulous job. Usually I am picky with what goes on the tree and where but this year I thought I'd let her take control.
Saturdays mean an Inspiration Challenge on SCS and I chose to use this piece here.
I gave brayering a shot....as you can see I need to practice a bit more...
This is a new set from Taylored Expressions called Discover Your Wings.
Stamps: Discover Your Wings; Cardstock: Black, Kiwi Kiss, White; Inks: Black, Kiwi, Soft Sky, Baja Breeze; Accessories: Brayer, Stickles, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by! I hope I have more time to stamp tomorrow!

What a lovely card. I think you did a great job with the brayer. I haven't mastered it yet. I love the blending of the colours.

This is so pretty, Dawn! You're brave using a brayer! LOL! I have one and have only used it to ink my bg stamps!

I totally hear you about the Christmas tree! I let Meredith help me decorate ours...needless to say, each of the bottom branches has about 5 ornaments on each! LOL!!
