This is the card that I made for my Mom for Easter. It's also my Ocean's 11 Challenge card for the week--which was a layout sketch (SSS08) that you can see over at On Life and Creating. (She also has blog candy connected to her sketches...so I'd check it out if you have time) I can't believe it's only Tuesday and I have it done....but I had to get the card finished so I could get it into the mail. I loved this layout. Really got me into the card and I was able to get it made quicker then just staring at the cardstock wondering which direction to take.
I used the Bella Birds paper and it reminded me of the Carte Postale bird, so I dug out that set...I have the Enchante paper that came out when that stamp set did...but I thought it was also a good match for this DP as well.
You can see the bird on the DP...and then of course the embossed one that I did. This card is completely Stampin' UP! I usually add flowers etc, that are from elsewhere, but today I used my Pretties Kit and made a hat pin instead.
I am loving that Eyelet Border Punch!! It really softens up the edge of the card.
