Birthday Wishes

Friday, November 20, 2015

Hi there! For my second post today I made a card for Freshly Made Sketches.

I was super excited about this week's sketch because I just got a new paper pad from Michael's and I thought it would go great with a new PTI stamp set. I die cut and trimmed all my pieces and stamped the bird and the sentiment. This card evolved as I was making it because originally I just had the bird on the branch and I felt like it was too plain. First I die cut the tree and added it to the left side. That grounded the branch but it still needed something so I grabbed another new stamp set and stamped a few snowflakes. I love the way it turned out. 

My Supplies: 
Stamps: PTI Winter Woods, PTI Fab Flakes
Dies: PTI Winter Woods, MFT Die-namics Blueprint 13
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy, PTI True Black
Paper: PTI Soft Stone, PTI Pure Poppy, PTI Stamper's Select White, DCWV Cranberry Christmas 

Thank you for coming by! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
