On this card I have used some of my new favorite things. I have used this gorgeous paper from Echo Park called For the Record. The background red paper is actually from EP as well, but from the Holly Jolly collection. The birdcage and bird are from Tim Holtz. The tag is a Magnolia tag and the flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have had this lace for a while but was just waiting for the perfect project to use it on.
You can actually pull the tag out from between the two papers. The punch is and EK Success punch. It is hard to tell but the bird was actually edged with some Creme Brulee ink from CTMH. As were the edges of the scalloped papers.
I used a butterfly spellbinder on the inside with more of that EP paper. Sheree said that Ethyl is in her
late 70's so I was going for a vintage flair. I hope that she gets enjoyment from the cards that are being sent to her from all over.
I am going to go ahead and enter this card into a few challenges.
Cute Card Thursday has lace as it's challenge.
Bearly-Mine has anything goes.
City Crafter Challenge has birds of a feather using birds or a birdcage.
Creative Craft Challenges has pretty blossoms
Party Time Tuesdays challenge is a square card
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will check out Sheree's post as well as see the candy she is giving away to someone that sends a card to Ethyl.
