Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Thursday - Congrats on the new nest

I had a really hard time deciding what I wanted to do this week.  I had never used chalk to color a digi so I knew I wanted to find a stamp that would lend itself to coloring with chalk.  I decided on this image from  "Birds and Branches"

There wasn't a lot of supplies used with this card...I really wanted something clean and simple.  I chalked the image and inked around the edge with blue and double matted with beige and light blue card stock.  The sentiment is also from Lindsay's and I cut it out with an oval nestie and inked the edge of it also.  I punched each side with a punch and threaded ribbon through it.  Added 3 dots of light blue Scribbles... inked the entire edge of the card and that's it.

You can find Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Stamp Sets (and freebies) at mygrafico.  While you're there check out the Schools- out Sale through Saturday.

Visit Lindsay's Blog as well as the rest of the Design Team Blogs to see what they're up to this week.  You.ll see some great projects plus Lindsay has a freebie for you.
