As I was looking around blogs I saw that over at Taylored Expressions there was a sketch. I thought this would be the perfect time to use my new Taylored Expressions stamp set's Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates.
So here is what I did. (As you can see I flipped the sketch 90 degrees to the right.) I had a lot of fun putting this card together. I started with the flowers (Kiwi Kiss-ish, Pixie Pink-ish and Kraft-ish) and then based the colors for the rest of the card off of them.
I used my big shot and the Large and Small Dots texture plates to add a little texture to the Close to Cocoa and the Baja Breeze card stock.
I decided to put a sheet of clear transparency over my stamped image, just to give the card one more element. Just before I taped the stamped image and the flower embellishment to the rest of the card I had an "ahh-haa moment", and this is what I did......
I made the stamped image and the flower embellishment a magnet! So when the recipient gets this card, she can take the image off the card and put it on her fridge! What do you think? A cute card and a gift all in one!
Here is one last picture of the branch and the little bird house!
Thanks for looking!
