A birthday card that features a bluebird, organza ribbon and an embossed background!

A friend of mine asked for a birthday card for her bluebird loving friend which featured a blue bird.  I found this bluebird digital at Clipground which I laser printed on white cardstock and watercoloured.  I pieced a layer of scrapbook paper which coordinated and added an organza ribbon before adding my blue bird.  I mounted this layer to an embossed (CB) beige layer which was mounted to a blue card.  To finish off my card I added a small greeting (digital from Desert Diva) which I laser printed, flagged and sponged before adding it with 3D foam tape.    Always fun to challenge myself to create custom cards!   Therese

Thank you card with a fall leaf, fiber and a stamped greeting

I always like to acknowledge the kindness that others have bestowed on us!! 
This card features a stamped leaf which I watercoloured.  I trimmed it down, pierced the edges with my tracing wheel, tied on some green fiber and mounted it to a dark red layer of cardstock.  The green fiber adds a bit of texture.  I glued this large element to an embossed (leaves) brown card front and added a small stamped greeting on the lower right hand corner.
