Hey There!

Hello friends!  Today's card was made with Branching Out and Calypso.  I first colored a piece of cardstock using several green, blue shades of distress inks... then i die cut a wreath from it.  I used the inlay technique to add my wreath on the white cardstock.  My red birds were adhered using foam tape, with some glossy accent added.  Sentiment and few sequins were added to complete the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!   

I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:


  1. Just so sweet... or should I say "tweet"?
