Good morning and Happy Monday. Although it is raining out it is still a good morning, since I"m off today. It was a cold weekend, still wearing winter coat, hat & mitts as we ventured down to Pt. Pelee National Park. It was a north west wind, which made it very cold. But non the less we were able to see some migrant warblers at the tip. We were lucky enough to see a Prairie Warbler (rare) but not a very good picture as it was gloomy and dark, but at least we can see we saw one! Some of the other varieties we saw were Yellow-rumped warbler, blue headed vireo, baltimore oriole, cape may, palm, black & white, warbling vireo, and a solitary sandpiper.
Since we are on the topic of birds, I thought I would share this card today. I'm using an image from the Flourishes LLC set called Spring has Sprung.
I stamped the image onto some white cougar 100 lb c/s, then coloured using prismacolour pencils.
I then cut it out using a Papertrey Ink die called Fun frames die. I actually cut the rectangle piece a second time so I could layer it under the image piece for a bit of dimension.
I used my MFT- Die-namics stitched cover-up companion - vertical die to cut my designer paper - Pink Paislee- butterfly garden. I used papers from the same collection for the 2 inserts. Love how this looks! To finish off, I added some silk ribbon, clear sequins and used my wink of stella clear pen for a bit of shimmer on the flowers.
This card could be used for many occasions, but I am using it as a Mother's Day card!
I hope I have inspired you in some way today. Have a wonderful day, and thanks for your visit.
