Uru and Bird

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Here is a card that I made for a challenge a little while ago, but I missed the deadline and didn't have the chance to post it until now.


I used my beloved Uru and Bird for this card. This super cute image is still one of my most favorite holiday images. =)


Both the image and sentiment label were inked with tea dye very lightly. I added some star dust Stickles to the snowy ground and golden rod Stickles to the edges of the image and sentiment label.


The patterned paper from Memory Box's beautiful Mistletoe collection and the paper doily were inked with tea dye as well. The seam binding and flowers were dyed with fired brick.

That's all for now. Have a lovely Sunday! =)



Thanks for stopping by!
