Over at the Hero Arts Flickr group there was a Spring Card exchange.... Now it might be spring over in the Northern but today is very wintery here in Auckland. After the amazing weekend, the weather turned nasty today. Anyway, I took part in the Spring exchange. I got to make a card and sent to Janet in Texas.
I started with some pretty PP that I found here on Astrid's Pinterest. It really looked spring like to me. I printed it out to fit the front of the card, distressed and added some distress ink round the edge. Added a Martha Stewart border punched edge and a ribbon. The bird cage and bird are Tim Holtz/Sizzix dies. The sentiment and the little dragonflies are by Hero Arts. A little ribbon and it's finished.
And look at what came to me all the way from Cindy in Canada
Isn't it awesome. It really looks stunning and I like the added touch of a real stamp on it. Thank you Cindy.
And a quick little peek at the sunset the other night. It look really awesome.
