Hello Friend

I'm back!  Sorry for being gone for so long...things have been crazy busy at work and last Sunday I cut my finger pretty good and ended up in the ER for the afternoon.  Things are still crazy busy, but I've squeezed in some crafting time!

Today I have a card to share:

I used kraft cardstock and the Birthday Bash cartridge for the card base.  The circle layers are both sides of double sided paper, I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.   The paper is My Mind's Eye, Miss Caroline, Fiddlesticks "Lucky" Tapestry paper. 

The flowers and brad were from my stash.  I'm not sure of the maker as they are all in a  bucket that I pick out of.  The stamp is a Papertrey Ink stamp.  I stamped it with Versamark and used white embossing powder, then lightly inked over that with a gold ink.

The bird and branch are cut from the Home Decor cartridge - another one I don't use very often but love!  I inked around the bird with the corduroy distress ink and added some accents with a white gel pen.  The bird is popped up with foam tape.

I left the inside blank for now.  I already have an idea who is getting this card and I may need all the writing space  :-)

I hope you enjoyed today's card, I'll be back tomorrow with an altered project that goes along with this card.
