simple cards for southernbreezes.com weekly challenge

for a southernbreezes challenge....had to make a "no fuss" card. yikes. that is always hard for me !! both of these are pretty simple....as simple as i can get i think!

the first uses two nestability bird dies... the wing is actually a smaller bird, attached with a button to cover the beak. the chipboard flourish is inked with blue and green brilliance inks to match the bird and background. background cardstock is from the far east stack. birdie's eye is a dew drop colored blue...i buy clear dew drops and then color them with copic markers to get the right color

the second is cardstock covered in aluminum foil, run through the cuttlebug using a quickcutz embossing folder and then inked with blue and green alcohol inks. the background is made with the swiss dot cuttlebug embossing folder and inked. the martha stewart line has such wonderful punches....this little butterfly sparkles...it's cut from a light blue glitter cardstock.....


  1. Oh my gosh you just keep getting better and better, Just when I think I've seen you make the prettiest one yet, you post a new one.
