Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning! We're on the downhill side of this week, so I hope it's going well for you.

I couldn't get enough of Lindsay's new set, Birds and Branches, so I have another card to show today. I also followed the sketch from The Pink Elephant. The only draw back was, I did A LOT of cut-work on the branch and then I ended up covering most of it up! Still, it's a pretty card.


I had just gotten this paper from AC Moore the other day, so I was very excited to use it. It works perfectly with the card. I embossed a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock with the Birds & Branches (I think that's what it's called) Cuttlebug folder. I colored the image with Copics and then finished it off with a piece of linen thread for the hanging part.

Be sure to visit Lindsay and the rest of the team - they are sure to have something amazing to show you. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Melissa, you really put the papers together wonderfully - look how the swirls on the background work with the brown that you embossed - more swirls; how cute! This is a lovely image - I see you even tied twine so that birdhouse looks to be hanging from the branch you cut out! Wow, you're so talented and very clever! Lovely card! ;D

Oh I love it. I love those colors. They are so elegant and I don't think the branch covers too much. It accents the card perfectly. Beautiful, beautiful card!
