Three Amigas Black, White and Red

This week is Joanne's (aka sleepy inseattle) turn to set the Three Amigas Weekly Challenge. Black and white, with a bit of red. How fun! As soon as she announced what it would be, I thought of this. This card was screaming at me to be made, so I dropped my preparations for a workshop and made it. LOL! It's hard to see, but the main white sheet with the piercing also has leaves clear embossed on it. I used my Watercolor Vine Jumbo Wheel with VersaMark and clear embossing powder. This idea is also from Joanne. Joanne, you rock! Yes, it was a pain to cut out those little birds, but I really wanted the special worth it! We would love it if you'd like to play along. Just post your card on SCS and use TAWC in the key words. While you're at SCS, check out the wonderful Stampin' Up! gallery. All of the past and present stamp sets are listed there individually.
Supplies: Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock. Branch Out stamp set. Basic Black and Real Red Classic Ink. Crafter's Tool Kit and the wonderful SU! paper snips.
Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station!
