Card A Day Blog Entry: Friendship

Hi everyone, here I am again with another entry for the Card A Day Blog. This months theme is " Friendship".

How I made my card: 

First, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" card base. I then cut a piece of patterned paper from the Bo Bunny Alora collection paper pack 5.25"x4", and attached it to my card base. I then cut out a piece of patterned paper from the Die Cut With A View Mariposa paper pack, 2.25"x5.25" and adhered it to the middle of my card on top of my first patterned paper.

The bird is from a stamp set from "ditto", which I purchased from a recent trip to Micheal's. I really thought this bird looked real neat, and it also came with a coordinating heart stamp. I stamped the bird image on a piece of white card stock, and colored it with 3 different Copic markers in the R and RV families. I can't remember which ones exactly, because I decided to clean up my craft area before I wrote this post, and put away all the markers I had been using. I guess that will teach me for cleaning!

I cut out my stamped image and placed it on the left side of the strip of Mariposa paper. I added an eye for my bird with a Viva Decor, Holo Iridescent glitter liner . For my sentiment, I used two stamps from the Woodware, Thank You 4, stamp sets. I like this set, because they have little sentence strips, one that says, Thank you for..., then several others that could be used to finish the sentence for several different occasions. I stamped next to the bird on the left, Thank you for..., then on the inside, " being such a good friend". I also added lace across the top and bottom of the Mariposa paper, that I purchased from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I hope you like what I did with my card, and if you would like to leave me a comment, and let me know what you think, I would really appreciate it. Make sure to check out our monthly challenge, and if you enter it, you might just win a fabulous prize!
