A Birthday Card for a Friend

This is a repeat of one I made before, with improvements to my wisteria, and a more elaborate inside.

So I figured out how to make my wisteria look a bit more lush, and again, I had fun water/coloring the bluebirds. Plus, the organza ribbon bows in each corner give it a nice touch, I think! The little bit of shiny gold cardstock beneath the sentiment is a subtle eye catching element as well.
I just love adding a little bit of lace to the inside, a half circle which helps set off both inside panels. I felt very clever figuring out the panel with the hearts, and I really like the way it looks. I almost had trouble giving this card away!
The last panel is simple, unless you lay the lacy part on top, and then it’s rather striking!

Totally enjoy working with this paper, and also enjoy playing with my Zig Clear Color markers, as well as the beautiful lacy dies created by Heartfelt Creations! No I don’t work for them, but it almost seems like I’m doing a commercial for them, doesn’t it!
