Squigglefly Challenge #61

Happy Monday! Here is a card that I made for Challenge #61 over at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog.

The challenge is to make a simple sympathy card using brown and cream. The beautiful digital stamp that I used is called Picked the Right One by Angie Davis. I love the pretty bird and think that it would fit for many different occasions.

I embossed the brown cardstock with a folder from Cuttlebug then inked the edges with Papertrye Ink's vintage cream ink. I also inked all the other paper edges with tea dye. The cream/beige seam biding is from Hug Snug available here. Thanks to Donna for the link and for enabling me!! =) The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have for now. Hope you will join us this week! Please check here for all the details for the challenge!

Have a beautiful day! =)
