Hellooo from the absent blogger. Not sure where the time is flying but it is gone. I have not been overly creative much to my dismay. I have been playing with my stuff though, but more trying things out that creating.

This is a Mother's Day card, my mother-in-law loves birds so I try to use them as a focus when I can. This picture highlights the brown in around the focal image quite a bit but it really does not stand out that way in real life. I have been using Doublemates cardstock, it is doublesided with coordinating colors on each side with no white center for my layers.

The flower is a 2-D design, I used Sizzex flower #4 die cut to create. The first layer is the Chocolate malt cardstock with the second layer DP, I used foam tape in between. For the circle dies I used Spellbinders Nestabilites, Circle and Circle Scallops.

I added Kaiser Craft pearls to finish it all off, I though they matched the lace ribbon nicely.

Supplies: cream and chocolate malt cardstock, Designer paper-Enchanted whimsical-Upsy Daisy Designs, Inkadinkado – Sparrow, Kaisercraft – Pearls, lace ribbon.
