Happy Friday. Where has this week gone? It's been another one of those weeks with long work days that just run into each other! I am hoping to get into my crafting cave this weekend to recover some of my equilibrium!
I have a card for you using the Stampin' Up! sets Very Versailles and Free as a Bird. Another two sets that will stay with me long after they have retired! I was inspired to use them because of the sketch across at As You See It
It's a really unusual layout and I decided to use a background stamp and the free as a bird image to create the focal elements. I kept the color scheme to shades of yellow/orange and loosely colored the birds and popped them off the base layer. For the element on the top left, I used the sun stamp from the June Paper Pumpkin kit. Here's my card:
I carried the sunshine them to the inside
I used the same papers as I had used on the front of my card to decorate the flap of the envelope. I die-cut the envelope flap using a die set from the mini catalog called Ornamental Envelopes. It has some great holiday themed days, but I thought many of them (including this one) worked well beyond the holidays.
Here's the envelope:
I'll be back tomorrow with another card - and photos of what has been visiting the feeder. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
