Bird in Wreath

I am using a background that I had made earlier with my stamping group, made by swiping an ink pad onto glossy paper.


I added a bit of sparkle pen to the bird, to give it a bit of color and sparkle. I cut the wreath from white card stock and colored with markers. When done I added some Liquid pearls for the look of berries.



Hot off the press - Wreath die, colored w/markers
Recollections - wood bird
Background - swiping Distress Oxides onto glossy paper
Distress Oxides - iced spruce, walnut stain and wild honey
Spectrum noir sparkle pens - Teacup and Rose Quartz
Spellbinders - Ribbon banners die
Gina Marie - Birthday words sentiment stamp
Liquid pearls - Chestnut

Wow I just can't believe it is August already the summer months are just flying by.  Hope you all are enjoying the last month of summer!!

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to stop by and say Hi,

Connie

If Summer is flying by up there that must means that the last days of Winter down here will soon be but a memory. =) This is a beautiful card, Connie. The wreath is clever and the sweet little bird is perfect. I love the colour green of the leaves and the background is perfect. Another gorgeous card!

Oh, my gosh, beautiful wreath and bird, and your background is so amazing! Love this card! I can't believe it's August either. Seems like we're just getting into the swing of summer and now it's winding down. Still lots of beautiful weather ahead. Then I'll be loving fall and winter. It's all good!
