Feeding the Birds

Hello dear friends,

Today I am sharing a card made with one of my new Wild Rose Studio stamps and Annabelle’s Meadow paper pad. Blue is one of my favourite colours and I love the outcome of this card. The blue ribbon is also a new addition to my stash. It is from May Arts and the silky look is so gorgeous. I ordered some more colours and can’t wait to use this ribbon on more cards as it makes perfect bows each time. Colouring such a detailed image took a long time but in the end, everything was worthwhile. Hope you like the card as much as I had fun in creating it.

Challenges:

    Amazing and gorgeous creation. I can imagine just how long it took you to color this adorable image as it is definitely exquisite..Your design is beautiful with the distressed DP and dies so elegantly placed. Truly another work of art Amelia with all the added details and embellishments. “Hugs”
