Birds and Flowers
Today's card is a semi case from SCS. I kept the layout and concept of the card but changed all the stamp sets and colors. I was happy to use the SU bird punch again since I've only used it a couple times but had to have it... you know that feeling :)
So here's the details on the card... Base is close to cocoa and layered with some baja breeze that I embossed with SU's new tulip folder. I love the way this folder frames the image. Then I layered some vanilla with some choc chip paper for the insert. I first stamped the speckled bg which is one of the first stamps I ever picked up from Joann's years ago and do not currently know the name of it. The flowers are an SU set watercolor trio that I stamped in artichoke and baja breeze colors. I punched the bird on some cocoa paper and embossed it with the textile folder. The sentiment is also SU from the same set as the flowers watercolor trio. I dug into my ribbon stash and pulled out some of these fibers from who knows where for the finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. Sorry for the crooked pic today.
