Fall Birdhouse

Last night I made some little holiday notebooks using the new Take Note set from PTI. I'm dealing with a disappointing camera at the moment so the card I am sharing with you today is one I made a few weeks ago.

The bird house (Bird House Autumn - 1179H) and sentiment (More Things - 027D) are from Serendipity Stamps.

I stamped the bird house in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and colored it with Copic markers. I added some sparkle with the Spica glitter pens but it isn't showing up well in the photo.

The patterned paper border was punched using the Embossed Curve edge punch from EK Success. The paper is from the Patterns Pack III from SU!. I free-handed the paper pierced flourish in the upper left corner. Just lightly sketch a pencil line to follow and erase afterwards.

Thank you for your visit today, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I am going to try and stay busy, and we'll see if I pop in with something new. I am feeling very inspired after reading Michelle Wooderson's post about using the colors red and cream together!
