Flutter


I saw this sketch on Mercy Kerin's blog and had to try it. She had three like brads/buttons/or "something" on the sketch, but three of these brads on my card were just a little too much so I used two of them instead. I embossed the white background with the Swirls embossing folder and then used Night of Navy cardstock and DP. I stamped the Inkadinkado little bird in Night of Navy, sponged around the white and paper pierced, matted and then popped it up on dimensionals. I topped it off with the organza ribbon on the side and tied the bow with my Bow-Easy from i {heart} papers. I thought about adding some bling to the little flowers behind the bird but, there again, it just seemed like too much for the card.

It was nice to take a small break from something Christmas-y right now. I'm in the process of making FIVE Sock Monkeys for gifts, so it will be a couple of days (probably Monday) before I post again - if I'm not swinging from jungle vines by then!!!

Thanks for stopping by..................

I love the beauty of this card... the white with just a hint of blue makes it seem so pure and yet festive. I don't think I'm explaining my thoughts very well so I'll just say that this card is absolutely gorgeous!!!

How pretty. The details of the embossing, ribbon, piercing and buttons take this from nice to wow.
