A quick little card today for a friend of mine. I love this little bird from Unity – I don’t use it very often, but I think it is so sweet. I paper-pieced this cutie with some old American Crafts paper – I know this was popular awhile ago, but I still can’t get enough of it. I have also been seriously hoarding this rose ribbon, but finally forced myself to use it! (Sorry for the plain background!).
A super quick post tonight – just about to head out for a date night but no restaurant booking, so its not looking good for 7:45pm on a Friday night. Oh well – we’ll be spontaneous!
Anyway, wanted to squeeze in this card I whipped up for the current sketch challenge over at Card Patterns. I thought this sketch would be very difficult for me, but found that this came together much faster than usual. I also haven’t jumped on the rolled flower bandwagon yet – not that I don’t love them, just haven’t ventured in that direction. I decided to give it a try using felt for this card & I really liked the result – not perfect, but a decent first attempt! One of my fave color combos as well – red, aqua & kraft.
