Welcome and Happy Monday!
Though this card could be used for a variety of occasions, it was part of my Mother's Day 2015 Collection. It had an appropriate sentiment inside. I relied heavily on the Kaisercraft Lady Rose suite to put this together. The patterned papers, bird and bird cage come from it. I wiped a white craft ink pad along the edges of the card to distress it a bit. And for the die cuts, I inked those edges with a kraft-colored Distress ink. The sentiment and tiny little pal-pink heart border (on sentiment tag) are from Papertrey Ink's Tag-Its #11.
I gave the bird some leafy branches to nestle in, and added a bit of lace underneath. This must be a lady-bird. ;-)
Did you have a good weekend? What did you do?
I packed a lot into mine, and yet still had time to unwind and relax. Love it when you can strike that combination. :-) I exercised, weeded, mulched, did laundry, went to church, helped the Vacation Bible School crew with a few things, enjoyed an impromptu visit from my sister-in-law, went out to dinner, cleaned the bathroom, changed bedsheets in two bedrooms, took photos of cards, made two cards (!), and -- favorite part -- swam in the pool with hubby and one of my girls. My husband and I even had Happy Hour in the pool with a couple of martinis. That was well-earned!
