I finally had time to get back in the my "happy place" after the last two days of rushing to get Mom ready to go back home. The past two weeks just flew by, and I'd have loved it if she could have stayed longer, but she needs to see her doctor so I had to let her go.
This card is one of the ones I made for the Stamp Review Crew Petal Palette blog hop, but I didn't get the photo done and edited in time. Sometimes that last-minute-deadline-looming-mojo comes back to bite me in the behind, LOL.
The bird is colored with Night of Navy, Pool Party, and Bermuda Bay combo Stampin' Blends. I don't know what kind of bird he is (and obviously it's a male, because of the bright plumage), but I like him! He's perched on a branch borrowed from Colorful Seasons.
The pretty scalloped edging was made with the filigree die in the Petals & More Thinlits. I cut two of them, then split them lengthwise and glued them to the back of the mat. You have to look really hard to see the seam where they are joined to make them longer!
