Hub's birthday card

Hi Everyone.  Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Yesterday we went off to London to  celebrate Father's Day, my Hubby's, brother's, brother-in-law's and Dad's birthday.  Yes, June is a very busy month for our family.  I tell you I don't think I need to eat for the rest of the week.  So much delicious food.  I got on the scale this morning, and it is not a good thing! I guess I'm back to the daily walking routine and lots of water.

Today's card is one I made for my Hub's. 

I used my 'new' Grand Calibur and labels #4.  I love that S/binders came out with a larger die cutting machine - it takes card making to a whole new level.  Now I must say I this card on Amy Sheffer's blog, and fell in love with the card base. then again I fall in love with everything she does.  She is amazing!
So I just went from there.  My hub's is a bird lover/watcher/photograher (in his spare time) so I wanted to incorporate a bird on the card.  I have this paper from K & Co called Celeste by Brenda Walton.  I've had this paper pack for a while, so many pretty papers, but finally caved into cutting a piece!

Sentiment - stamped in Always Artichoke  is from Verve and I also used a leaf die from Sizzix.  Dusted all edges using antique linen then went over that with a bit of frayed burlap.
Finished off with some beige seam binding.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Back tomorrow with a Mo image.

till then,
