Can’t believe my 3-day trip to Portland was over already. I was off work today to do the laundry and the unpacking. It was quite a productive day because I also made a card for my sister-in-law’s birthday. Thanks to the beautiful colour combination of this week’s PPA Color Challenge (PPA140). I was able to create this card in a relatively short time (my hubby, Jonathan, definitely knows how much time I could spend on making a card, hehe!).
- The big blossom image was stamped onto the Marina Mist cardstock using Versamark to create a subtle background.
- The patterned paper is from Stampin’ Up! Comfort Café Designer Series Paper Collection. I am growing to like the Summer Starfruit In Color. It gives a vintage feel to the card.
- The two leaves were stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock and snipped out using Paper Snips. One was just adhered using a piece of snail, and the other one was popped up using Stampin’ Dimensional.
- I added a Basic Rhinestone as the eye of the birdie.
