CASED a spring card

Hi everyone:
Yesterday I cased a lovely spring card from a friends magazine done by  Lorna Brinkman and I wanted to share it with you.
I finished it and took the photo only to find out that the stamped background didn't show up soooo I tried restamping the flowers in the background with a darker colour only to find that it was too dark (see the one at the bottom right corner) so the rest of them I inked up and then stamped off first and they turned out better.

I hope you like this card as much as I did. Please leave me a comment so I know you have been looking in. I love hearing from you.

The inner scallop is embossed with dots and the birds wing is embossed with lattice folders. I just used a black marker to put a dot on for the eye.

Cardstock: SU So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla.
Ink: SU Black, Rose Red & River Rock.
Ribbon just some laying around
Punch: SU Designer Lable Large & 2 Step Bird Extra Large.
Stamp:Watercolor Trio (Birthday saying) & Punched Posies (flowers) Plaid.

Cardbase So Saffron
First mat Very Vanilla cut  4 1/8  X  5 3/8
Pink cut 4 X 5 1/4
Green cut 1 1/2  X  4

  2. Love all the embossing you did and the color combination is great. I love that 2 step bird punch and use it a lot myself. Wonderful card.

  3. The colour combination on this card lets you know it is finally spring, you have put a lot of work into this one. I love all the embossing you have done. Must get a 2 step bird punch myself. Dianne

Thank you so much for taking a few moments to leave comment. I really appreciate it and look forward to them.
