A New Nest

It's a gray, rainy day outside so I needed something that would brighten the day up. So this card made me smile. My son and his girlfriend moved into anew apartment last week so I made this card for them.

I do love my plaid! This is a scrap from my scrap box that I used for the background. The image and sentiment is from a retired Gina K set called Owl Always Love You. I colored the image with Bic and Copic markers and die cut it with Spellbinder's Circle die then framed it with a combination of the circle die and the scalloped circle die. The leaves are die cut from Spellbinder's Foliage dies. I used distress ink to give the leaves some dimension. The sentiment I die cut with Clear Dollar Stamps Designer Labels (unfortunately they are no longer in business). I used distress ink again to speckle the sentiment tag. The sentiment is popped up from the card. I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch #333 as inspiration for this card and Addicted to Stamps and More challenge.


I am entering these challenges:
I hope this card brightens your day too. It's the weekend! I hope you get some time to play this weekend. I know I'm going to be pushing for some crafty time. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

Pretty card!! I love plaid, too! (I won't use some of my plaid scraps because then they won't be there for "when I want them"! LOL)
