I was struggling to come up with a birthday card for my sister last night.... do you find sometimes that close family members don't always 'get' the whole cute thing we do with images? Well mine don't, so I knew I had to come up with something a bit different, but what?! When I'm blog hopping and I see something I love I always make a note for future reference, so I looked through my list and came across one which I'd named bird houses...... hmmmmm, intriguing!! So I checked it out and came across this amazing card here..... wow, what a talented lady!!! And I knew this would be perfect for my sister's March birthday.... pretty, feminine and very seasonal.
I obviously put my own mark on the card but would like to say a huge thanks for the inspiration! As you can see I made some more of these little torn roses.... I think they might become my trademark soon as I just love making them!! I also took lots of inspiration from the challenge over at Simply Create as they have a mood board to work with and the colours are just beautiful!
I added in a little fabric bird and used some scraps of Kay & Co paper for the houses.... plus more of my gorgeous fabric vine leaf ribbon..... not sure I'll cope when that runs out, lol!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
