Nora with spring birds

Hello all! Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Here is a card that I made for Challenge #97 over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. Just checked, I think I missed the deadline. Oh well... =)


The challenge theme was "Love is in the air" and it didn't have to be a Valentine. I used the adorable Nora with spring birds for my card. I adore this delightful image. =)


I inked the paper lightly with spun sugar distress ink when the piece was still in the die. The sentiment piece is made the same way. The seam binding is dyed with the same ink and the paper doily is sponged with spun sugar as well.


The patterned paper is from the Gossamer collection by Memory Box and the sentient is from the Victorian Fripperie set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's all. Hope you have a lovely day! =)



Thanks for stopping by!

What an amazingly beautiful card! I lurve your colouring! Do you use the Ranger Ink Blending Tool to ink the die cut (while still in the nestabilities)? I can never get such an even inked effect!
