Good morning and happy Sunday to you all! I had a very nice day in the city yesterday. It was a little rainy in the morning but I got to drive with the top down in the convertible on the way home. 🙂 Today’s card is a simple card that would be a great masculine card and with a sentiment change could be for anything. I used one of my favorite stamps, the Young Vermillion Wood Mount À la Carte**. He is retired but he’s still a good one. He’s stamped in Bravo Burgundy and mounted on a piece of Bravo Burgundy Card Stock. The leaves image is from the Lovely As A Tree Wood Mount Stamp Set and is stamped in Always Artichoke and mounted on a piece of Always Artichoke Card Stock. I used one of the new Naturals Designer Buttons and tied it with some retired Natural Hemp Twine**. I saw the idea for the way to tie the button on Pinterest. It’s backed by some more Always Artichoke Card Stock and adhered to the card with Sticky Strip for extra staying power. The background is Crumb Cake embossed with the Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and that is mounted to the base which is Bravo Burgundy. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Wood Mount Stamp Set and is stamped in Always Artichoke and punched out with the Word Window Punch and the re-punched to make it shorter. I love the colors and the little bird and will miss him now that he is gone! I hope that you like today’s card and thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
