Thinking of You...

Hey there... here with a little card I made using Taylored Expressions Sketch challenge 157 and I made the card using all the items from my April Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients (I think one of the ribbons I used is from the March TE KI kit, though) kit!   The only think that wasn't in the kit is the felt I used as a mat.  The felt is from My Favorite Things.


Front of card


Inside of card
The patterned paper that I die cut using a Spellbinders plain circle die is what inspired me to use the TE set Birds of a Feather.  The patterned paper circle was matted with green felt die cut using a larger Spellbinders circle die.    I stamped the branch image using dark, dark brown ink and then trimmed it out.  The birdcage was stamped using yellow ink and trimmed out as well.   Both images were then popped up on the circles for more dimension.  I stamped a couple of little birds using a light aqua ink, trimmed them out and added them as you seen.  The sketch called for the sentiment to be on the front, but I decided to finish off the interior of the card with a strip of the same paper that was used for the die cut circle.  The left over paper just happened to have the little frame image already on it... the perfect spot to stamp my sentiment.  I have to tell you that I have been having a bit of a laugh over some of the comments left for me on cards that I have posted where I have finished the inside because many of you think I have made two separate cards!   If you take a look at the finished card, you can see the interior just peeking out on the one side.  I can see, though, how it might seem like two different cards since I have been taking a picture of the interior before I have adhered the finished card front to the card base.  (Ha!! I just discovered that I can add a caption to my pictures, so I have given both photos a caption!)

Thanks for stopping by....
