Stampin' Up! Bird on a Branch and I create a Springtime Blank Card



Hi Guys!
Back again with another card to share before bed! :)
This is a fairly basic card, I have used a Confetti White card base, layered with patterned paper from Kaisercraft, although, I felt it was too bright for this card, so I toned it down using plain vellum. I added a small piece of So Saffron card stock, layered with some Confetti White card which I'd run through the Bigshot with a woodgrain embossing folder. I added some pretty pink ruffled ribbon, and tied a bow. The main image is from the retired Stampin' Up! set Bird on a Branch and has been stamped using Stampin' Write Markers and sponged with Bashful Blue. I added three little Rhinestones and left this card blank, with no sentiment.
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Embellish Magazine challenge, next up is the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, and finally The Paper Players Spring Challenge.
Thanks for popping by!

Jess, what a beautiful bird on the branch! This card screams elegance with your choice of stamp and the "frame" you used to stamp it on! I really like how you softened the background paper with vellum. So glad you joined us for the Spring challenge at The Paper Players!
