Grateful

I've had this card in mind for weeks & finally got it made to enter IO You're a Hoot challenge.  I love the Nest Collage (F13050) & thought it'd make a beautiful Fall card.  
I swiped VersaMagic Red Brick, Mango Madness & Brilliance Pearlescent Rust on vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the image & Grateful sentiment (A8783) in Versafine Clair Acorn.  I brushed a gold glimmer pen over the bird & added an eye with a black pen.  
The card front was dry embossed with a piece of burlap & lightly brushed with Fresh Linen ink.  I matted the panel with brown cardstock & mounted it with fun foam.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & TTTC088 (Thanksgiving, Autumn, Rust).

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  2. That's a cool way to make your background and it's so pretty. Beautiful bird and those eggs in the nest are so sweet. I had a dove's nest with mama sitting on her eggs right at eye level in my front yard this year. It was so nice to visit her and she was so calm.
