Birds Galore Birthday Wishes

Today’s card is another one using Inkadinkado’s Birds Galore and Stampin’ Up!’s Sincere Salutations.

The bird image is inked with Versamagic Chalk Inks in Plumeria and Spanish Olive. I stamped it on scratch paper, and then on the card front. The rectangles are all cut with Rectangle Nestabilities – two scallops and one plain. The bottom layer is embossed with a Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder and sponged VERY lightly with Plumeria. The second layer is sponged with Spanish Olive. The top layer is embossed with a Cuttlebug Textile folder and sponged with Plumeria, and has a sheer ribbon tied around it. “Birthday Wishes” is stamped with Plumeria and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.

Camping update: It rained. No surprise! We had a wonderful time anyway – getting together with friends is always nice, no matter what the weather.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Lynette, this is beautiful. I never would have thought to layer cuttlebugged pieces over each other. It's stunning. thanks for sharing.
