Bird on a Flowering Branch Thinking of You with Sweet Stamps

I have a Thinking of You card today for Sweet Stamps.  Funny how the events in your life (or of those around you) influence the kinds of cards you make.  My boyfriend's family is saying a final good bye to a loved one this week, and this will be the card I send to his mother.

I used distress inks in Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint to create the background with the Moroccan Tile 5 x 7 stencil.  Then I stamped and heat embossed the Bird on a Flowering Branch rubber stamp and the sentiment from the Framed Handwritten Words clear stamp set onto a piece of vellum to tone down the background.  I added some black card stock strips to make sure it fit with the black card base, and then finally some bright green sequins.

This stamp was perfect for this kind of card.  It is detailed enough to not have to do anything else with it, and not too detailed that it all melted together.  I really like how this card turned out, and I know the family will appreciate it as well.

You can find all of the linked products in the Sweet Stamps online store.  Come and join in the two monthly challenges for a chance to win some know you want to!  See you soon!
