Pinspired #15

Hi it has been a while since I played with the Pinspired Challenges. Above is the inspiration pin.


I was inspired by the bird, the wood-like feel and the curves of the leaves.  I made a 4.25" square card. 


I love to mix patterned papers. I used blue/green hues of SU patterned papers cut using Kiwi Lane designer templates for cards, then I inked their edges for added dimension.  My bird was punched out and sprayed with Smooch Spritz in spun sugar. The bird and branches are from the SU build a bird punch.  I added a wood veneer ampersand to anchor the two white heat embossed sentiments together.  Thanks for taking a look.

Hi, Cat! What a great card you created with that inspiration piece. Love it! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. You commented so quickly after it was posted. I actually had to edit the post because I didn't follow the guidelines for one of the challenges. :(
