Good day traveller. I was excited when I awoke this morn to see the Broken China Birds have returned from their yearly flight to the south. Perhaps this means that spring is finally here and the winter snows have gone until the autumn. I walked the Guild Hall grounds, clutching a warm mug of coffee while my hellhounds bounced playfully at my heels, taking in the beauty of nature and was inspired to create a card. I went back to the newly redesigned crafting chambers and began work straight away.
I started this card by colouring the bird image with Prismacolors. I then cut the sentiment out using the Give a Hoot cartridge and embossed it with my Cuttlebug and trusty swiss dots folder. I also embossed the green panels using the coordinating Give a Hoot folder set. This earned me +267 impression exp points, allowing me to level up! I'm also seriously in love with these corner cuts from the Art Philosophy cartridge and couldn’t resist using them again on this card.
I didn’t really know what sentiment to put on the inside, so I decided on just stamping some random "naturey" images using the Unity “Naturally Yours” set.
I made the envelope “leafy” using the Dylusions “Further Around the Edge” set.
This earth loving card will be entered into the following challenges:
With the return of the Broken China Birds, unfortunately that also hails the return of the maleficent Silver Skinned Snake clan. These reptilian creatures can not survive in the cold and thusly reply upon the migration patterns of the Broken China Birds to know when to return and start pillaging villages once again. I will have to dispatch some scouts to keep an eye out for them and stop any trouble before it starts.
