Bird and Flower

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I want to show you a card I made using the Just for Fun Zentangle bird. I stamped the bird on an inked background and fussy cut it to add to the card. I used the Delightful Peony dies from Memory Box to cut the flower from another inked background and then I cut from black card stock for the overlay. I died some seam binding for my ribbon and bow using Distress inks. The ribbon was woven through the Maryanne Lace Ribbon Border die at the top.

On the background I also used The Small Window die from Cheery Lynn. Here is a close up to see it better.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

What a great card! I love the little bird, of course, but all the purple looks great with the vibrant flower.

This is such a great use of color! The oranges just pop off the deep blues and purples in the bird. I would never have thought to combine these colors, but it's fun and funky and really beautiful! Thanks so much for joining the fun at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Flower Challenge!
