Anyway, less Monday morning waffle. I just thought I'd share this card with you that I made for my lovely brother-in-law (a keen birdwatcher!) for his birthday over the weekend
I came across the idea for this card design on the fabulous Tracy MacDonald's blog 'I wanna build a memory'. She makes the most fantastic cards and creations and has some tutorials for different card designs, etc. So I thought I'd try this one with this gorgeous bird image from the JaneNetleyMayhew cd from Joanna Sheen and the patterned backing paper is also from the cd.
I added some stitching and die cut leaves (Spellbinders 'Fall Foliage') with some twine, the edges punched with MS border punch and lots of coredinations card for layering up - and everything edged with distress inks.
The sentiment inside is from Whimsy digi and the die cut leaves are Poppystamps 'meadow leaf'.
And it was nice to try a different design of card - I'll be using this one again! And I think the recipient will like it too - which is always the main objective!
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
JoannaSheenChallenge - layer it up
Here come the boys - no stamps
Challenges4Everybody - anything goes
Catch the bug - anything goes
DL.ART Challenge - birds
