Hi there! This is my second post today, so if you missed out on my earlier post, be sure to scroll down to find out about my giveaway and new crochet flowers in my Etsy shop!
As promised, I'm back with a card for two challenges. The first is the Embellish Magazine color challenge featuring birds, and the second is the sketch of the week at CardPatterns.
I love how this turned out! Can you believe I found this pretty bird stamp, along with a little flower and the word "happiness", for 50 cents at Jo-Ann?! I stamped it in Dark Chocolate on a Spellbinders label that I sponged with tea dye. I paired it up with some patterned paper from 7 Gypsies and Raspberry Fizz cardstock that I ran through my Big Shot with the Book Print impression plate from PTI. I sponged some Vintage Cream ink over it to make the impression a bit more visible. I added a New Leaf ribbon and some matching buttons, which I think totally make the card!
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, Raspberry Fizz)
Patterned paper: 7 Gypsies

This card will be for my MIL's birthday, so I finished off the inside with a sentiment from PTI's Signature Greetings and a couple of little leaf stamps from Turning a New Leaf, to incorporate the green color.
