For the first time in 3 years we had a beautiful, male Evening Grosbeak at the feeder this morning. Hubby joked about it being here in the morning instead of the evening.
Couldn't get a very good picture through the window & I was afraid it'd be gone if I opened the door.
I've been trying to come up with something for the Winnie & Walter May Color Combo, but couldn't figure out how to work in the lavender. Finally decided to follow Heather's example of using designer paper & I found exactly what I needed!
The gorgeous Graphic 45 Secret Garden was a gift several years ago from a blogging friend & I've barely used it. Glad I rescued the doily from under a soup bowl! I applied glue around the center, leaving the edge loose. The little word from Big, Bold, Seasons was stamped in Adirondack Mushroom. I happened to have one sheet of textured cardstock that was almost a perfect match, so I used it for 3 layers of the die cut word.
Stardust Stickles was added to the butterflies & the word was covered with Crystal Lacquer. After tying on the hemp & adding a pearl, the panel was attached to a Vintage Cream card. So rewarding to make a card I love! I'm also entering Allsorts, Butterfly Challenge & Word Art Wednesday.
Thought I'd also show you how I added the gift card holder for the Poppystamps challenge onto a card before sending it off. Really love the WRMK's 3D embossing folder! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
