Good Morning! Did you have a good long week-end? Was it filled with chocolate!?!
O-mi-goodness... the chocolate! Why did the "Easter Bunny" buy SO MUCH chocolate!?!
My children are too young to keep track of their chocolate and this Momma has absolutely NO will power! Somebody save me!!!
I'll see if I can stay away from the chocolate long enough to share this card...
Today's card uses one of my favourite stamps sets: For the Birds. (Not retiring this year! Yeah!) I stamped the birds on Naturals Ivory cardstock in Early Espresso Ink. I then coloured them in with a blender pen, Soft Suede, Real Red and Crushed Curry ink. To pick up ink with a blender pen, simply squeeze your ink pad before opening. This transfers ink to the top, inside of the lid, allowing you to dip your blender pen in it. Easy Peasy!
The side bar is created with a stamp from the set: Hello, Lovely (Retiring). I repeatedly stamped it on Crumb Cake cardstock in Soft Suede ink and then brushed the edges with Soft Suede ink! I embellished the centres with the tiny pearls.
To finish my card off, I of course, couldn't resist making a little "nest-like" embellishment with the 1-1/4 Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread. To get the ratty nest look, I tied linen thread down the length of my ribbon and then cut and frayed it. I topped it off with a button from the Naturals Designer Buttons (Retiring)
