The tree embellishment was silver-toned and I knew that that wouldn't do with the color scheme for this card. So I heat embossed it and decorated it with Stickles. I tied the tree to the ribbon with brown jute thread.
Materials: cardstock base (Bazzill); designer paper (Flair Designs); tree embellishment (Making Memories); clear embossing ink (Ranger); antique linen distress ink (Ranger); evergreen embossing powder (Ranger); Xmas Red Stickles (Ranger); sheer ribbon & brown jute (stash); adhesive (Pioneer mounting tape).
Thanks for looking.

The card base is Bazzill cardstock, the designer paper is some old SEI Christmas paper that I bought a couple of years ago. The ribbon is also stash. The scalloped circle behind the stamped image is the reverse of the striped paper.

So, I spent a quiet Sunday putting together pictures for a Shutterfly photo book.
I have SO many photos of birds (ALL my own) that I thought that it would be fun to gather them all together in one place.
I also did a little blurfing (blog-surfing) and realized that I hadn't been to Stacy Julian's blog since I'd moved, so.......
I found this post with a challenge to do something creative for 31 days in March. Since this is also my birthday month, I'm feeling a challenge need, so.......

I haven't abandoned this blog. I've just had a challenging couple of months.
No gory details here, just to say that I have moved to Arizona to take a new job.
I am unpacking my crafting tools and getting ready to take part in challenges, etc again.
I am posting the cover of the latest Take Ten magazine. One of the highlights of the month of February for me was getting my copy in the mail and slowly realizing that one of my challenge cards had been published!!! Woo hoo!! Go me!!
Next post will be some photos that I took today while on a hike with a local nature hikes/birding group.
More card posts this coming week. I promise.
