Welcome Spring

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a spring card to share with everyone for the Stamplorations -Things with Wings Linky Party.  I made it a little while ago, but it is new to my blog. 

A long time ago I die cut a bunch of these bird on branch pieces from patterned papers.  The negatives were way too pretty to cut up for other things, but they sat in my stash literally for years!!  I uncovered them some time back and made this cheery spring card.  I backed it with scraps of gold foiled cardstock and mounted it on a kraft card base.  LOVE!!

And here's a shot at angle to show off the golden gleam a little better:


Supplies used include:
Sizzix - TH Alterations - Bird Branch die (retired)

Waffle Flower - Welcome Spring
stamp set
Versamark ink
Ranger - Gold Superfine Detail Embossing Powder

Negative scrap from patterned paper

Scraps of foiled and solid cardstock

Sequins from stash
