A Very TWEET card!

Happy Mother's Day, friends!
I am happy to share a very sweet bird card today.
Hope your are celebrating a very special day with your mom, sister, sons, and daughters... or friends!

This new stamp from Penny Black Peaceful Time is fun and whimsical.
I actually started my design with this intricate die called  "Floral Strip".

with love

I thought the dies will look great against the kraft card stock. That's when I knew that I had to use  Peaceful Time  for my focal point.  The bird image has an coordinating die, but I just fussy cut it as it was super easy to do.

The birdie was colored with Distress Oxide with the help of a water brush.

This card was easy and fun to create! I hope that it brings you a smile.

I love your card. I really like how you used the white die cuts as sort of frames, and then how you made the bird on two layers to focus on the birdie and his beautiful details. So lovely.
Happy Mothers Day <3

The contrast of the white floral strip die on kraft card stock is perfect and goes so well with the sweet little bird. Really like the Distress ink colors you used.

Virginia, I hope you have a lovely Mother' s Day with your family.
