Bird Song

"A bird does not sing because it has the answer
It sings because it has a song"
-Maya Angelo'

I have always love the sentiment by Maya Angelo and could not resist the Fiskar stamp set when I saw it,  I have stamped the image using IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Espresso Truffle.  I have also used a Unity stamp as the main image, this too has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Espresso Truffle.  The card base and patterned paper has been cut using the A2 Curved Matting Basics A Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator Die.  All Dies  have been cut using the Grand Calibur® Machine.  

The main paper has been embossed using the Doily Art Celebra'tions™ 3D embossing folder.  The doily has been inked using IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Rose Bud and a Sponge Dauber.  Seam binding has been added, along with a double Seam Binding bow, topped with bling.  I have also used  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares for dimension ,and E-Z Runner on this card.  

This card is for the following challenges:

Creative Fingers Challenge - Anything Goes
