A Little Birdie Notecard

Hello, again!  Today I have for you another card made with papers from the delicious new pad I picked up on my impromptu shopping spree at Michaels a couple weeks ago.  It had to sit untouched on the shelf for several days before I could make enough time to do anything other than admire the pretty colors, poor thing.  But I put it to good use eventually  🙂  I also bought several packs of blank cards in white, cream, and kraft, and I was so excited to create my first card with a kraft base!  Take a look:

Don’t you just adore that little bird?  He’s so chubby and whimsical, I can hardly stand it!  This card actually started as a much cleaner, simpler design, but I quickly discovered that the floral patterned paper in the background was horribly unrelenting and needed some toning-down.  So, I added a doily!  The doily, the stitching, the bouquet, and the tiny white flowers on the yellow paper all come together and make me think of a country cottage.

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day 🙂

    Love this card, Melody. That little bird is adorable and the combo you came up with of the doily over the floral paper, the spot of yellow and the cool blue tassel trim, really tie the card together into something quite lovely. Great job!

    Yes, the chubby little bird is only the beginning of utter charm – and the blue tassel trim seals the deal! Hooray for playtime among your paper goodies!
