I made a card that I am going to send to my coworker Carolyn who had a knee surgery and is recovering at home.
I used the sketch from Mojo Monday Challenge #362
Color palette and bird theme from The Shabby Tea Room Week #235 "Birds of a Feather Flock Together"
And Butterfly inspiration from City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #228 "Butterflies"
After I cut out the cage, I painted it with Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle Paint and Clear Crackle Paint to give it that rustic look. I used three different inks to color the bird to mimic the color of the little birdie from The Shabby Tea Room Challenge inspiration photo.
I also added this fancy bird as an embellishment to a shabby beige triple bow.
All the flowers on this card are handmade by me. I embellished some with pink crystals and some with variety of flower stamens.
I created this sentiment using alphabet stamp set. The 3 white butterflies on this card are embellished each with different color set of adhesive pearls.
One more look at the card...
I hope you enjoyed this post. I am pretty sure Carolyn will love her card...
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by...
This card of mine won The Shabby Tea Room Challenge #235 YAY!!!
