Floral Bird Card with LOTS of Pictures to see... : )

Hi Everyone~  Well, I have missed another week of the MMSC challenge, but I will be back to normal with the Design Team next week and will post my card along with the other girls then.  Don't miss it or the fun that continually goes on over there. 

I wanted to at least give a post this week for you all to look at, and I thought this one might be a good one to list.  I made this awhile back as a special request from a friend, and I took what seemed like a million pictures of it, because there is just so much to see, so you get to see lots and lots on this one.  My daughter told me when I was making it that it was like a storybook that you had to see from beginning to end.   This took a long time to make, but I really do like it.  The image itself is raised about 1/2 inch off of the base of the card, so that it does not get lost in all the flowers, and then sheer ribbon is just weaved and flows throughout with a bow at the top.  There are lots of flowers, butterflies and rhinestones along with sparkle and shine in this very feminine, soft and delicate creation.  The envelope is VERY deep and roomy for this card to comfortably fit in and is decorated every bit as much as the card is inside and out.   I hope you enjoy all the pictures.  Please feel free to leave a comment and share your thoughts with me.  I always look forward to hearing your input regarding my work. 

















Thanks for taking the time to drop by today, and I hope you have a wonderful week.  See you again soon.

Until then, may many blessings come your way~

Boy, can I use the word amazing again? Stunning and jaw dropping BUT I am not surprised, I know you love flowers, lace and pearls and very feminine cards. Many beautiful details, I can see the time put into this card and love the bird on the front and the envelope. Clever on the spool. Blessings, Jane

Hi Carolyn,

Just wanted to stop by and say hi and congratulate you on making the top 3 scoops at Pile it On this week! What an amazing work of art you have created here. So many beautiful details. I can't imagine how much time you have put into it, but the results are fabulous.

Hope you are doing well. Sorry I don't get by more often, but I have pretty much overcommitted myself on DTs and am struggling to keep up! Be careful what we ask for, right?

Hugs and blessings,
Linda
