Card camp - week 2!

New colors, new card!


I honestly didn't know what to do with this batch when I started.  I mean - 2 different greens?  Yellow, orange AND red?  Huh.  Florals would work, but then...


these little sweeties were just lying around... begging me to ink them up again... I stamped them on different scraps of scrapbook papers in the red, orange and yellow colors and used 2 different green-colored markers to color the leaves.  I knew I wanted to cram as many birdies as I could on the branches, so some of them got longer legs - cute, huh? hee hee.


Then I went a little crazy on the sewing machine and made a whimsical border for the notebook page.  The rest of the card I kept pretty simple - an xl embossed scallop border, and a musical background for my base layer - to bring back the sunshine-y yellow that I love so much!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Really like this - particularly love the stitching. I must try that - I'm always sewing in absolute straight lines, could try being a bit "free-er"! Well done.
