Origins Bird

I would like to thank you all for your kind words concerning Lance's illness. His sugars have been a bit like a roller coaster lately, but he is doing much better!

I've made a birthday card for my sister, today. I was eager to use my SU bird punch again, and thought it would look pretty with this paper from my new Origins BasicGrey paper pad. I trimmed off the bottom edge of my patterned paper, and punched the edge of the Spring Moss with my Embossed Curve EK Success punch.

Stamps: Women of Life (PTI)
Card Stock: Spring Moss, Black, New Leaf, Origins (BasicGrey)
Ink: Vintage Cream
Accessories: 2-Step Bird punch (SU), Embossed Curve punch (EK Success), Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Black Sheer ribbon (retired SU), Tombo Multi Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping!

Thanks for visiting!
