Hello my people, yes if your a paper crafter, then you are my people. Ha
Today I am sharing with you a birthday card that I have made for one of my sister's. She told me awhile back that she wanted a bird on her card this year. So of course I had to make her one.
I love sitting on my porch watching the birds and so does my sister. We both get the feed sacks that are for the yellow finch. So I went with that type of bird for her card.
I used the stamp set from Hero Arts called Bird & Branch. I am so happy I bought this set. Love that I can make so many different colored birds.
Another stamp set that I used is Itty Bitty Backgrounds from Stampin Up. It's retired now and I still use it all the time. You can verily see where I used it on the tag.
I thought the tag was to plain so I used a stitched scallop die on the bottom from Pretty in Pink called Stitched Borders. I like how it turned out.
The Inks I used to make the bird are Barely Banana,Summer Sun and Memento Black.
For the flowers I used Lavender Lace and Gorgeous Grape. I also used a little purple Stickles in the center of each flower. Used Old Olive for the leaves and Close to Cocoa for the branch and bird legs.
The blue card stock was in my scrap box. I think it's Bashful Blue from S.U. Wish they had never retired it.
The black and white polka dot paper was in my paper scraps. Also used my Woodgrain embossing folder.
Tied white sheer ribbon through the tag and tied twine around the ribbon and added one purple sequins. Hoping she enjoys her card.
I also have another Zucchini recipe to share with you. This time it's with Chocolate...... YUM!
