My Latest Card

Hello fellow crafters!  This is going to be short.

I just want to share with you a card I created over the weekend.  It's for the "For The Birds" Card Swap, and we're supposed to have birds on our cards.  This might be the last swap I'll be participating for this year.  I need to start preparing for the coming Holidays.

My inspiration for this card is from the "Star of Wonder" card created by Becca Feeken.  I love all her cards and I like to visit her blog.  I started with 2 designs, and I ended up using the one on the left.  Which one do you prefer?

Because this is my last swap card for this year, I decided to make it extra special.  I put a lot of layers and used designer paper by Mind's Eye Bohemia Collection and cardstock by Georgia Pacific and DCWV.  I inked the cardstock edges with one of my favorite inks ColorBox Fluid Chalk Inkpad in Charcoal.  I also used my recently acquired Nestabilities Labels 2.  The sentiment image is from Cloud 9 Designs and the bird image is by CTMH.  I accentuated the card with black ribbon, black flower sequin and black glitter glue by Gary M. Burlin & Co.

The swap is 5 + 1, and I made 8 cards.  One for me, and another one for Claire .

'Till next blog!
