Bird Queen Birthday

Hello friends, I am popping in to share a card with you - I have been working on projects that I cannot show you as yet, but will be able to share soon.  In the meantime....

I have been playing around with embossing and inks/paints and love the effect that it can give.  In this case I have used the Spellbinders Cabbage Rose Embossing Folder - I think it would be one of my favourite 'go to' folders.  It has been sponged with Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Bamboo.Leaves.

The bird and frame image have also been stamped using Bamboo Leaves and cut out using Spellbinders Classic Ovals SML and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform and popped up onto a backing layer using using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable DispenserWant2Scrap Beautiful Bling Borders has been trimmed and added to the top corners and along the lower portion of the layer and popped up onto a backing layer using using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The layers are all popped up into a precut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
