Happy Spring and a special card for my brother

Happy Spring to everyone.  I hope you had a blessed holiday! Last evening, I made a card for my brother's birthday next week.  This is my first kraft paper card.  I used a Darice Dandelion embossing plate and tried to highlight the embossing with Unicorn ink (I really need to work on this skill set).

I then used the silver Wink of Stella for the stems and added some embellishments.  Hope you like it.

Blessed Passover and Happy Easter to everyone!

Hello everyone.  It has been a very trying week here.  I tripped over a bag last Sunday evening and have been in a very lot of pain but am getting better now.  Yesterday, I received the new April Stamps of Life stamps and dies and have created a tag for my dear sweet wife Donna.

I die-cut the birdcage and birds using Graphics 45 6x6 Artisan paper.  Then  colored the birdcage with Ranger Distressed Ink Wild Honey (a personal favorite of mine) and followed up by brushing the entire cage with Wink of Stella Gold.  I die-cut and colored the birds and mounted all with TomBow Mono ink.  Amber rhinestones and a brown polka dot ribbon completed the tag.  Hope you enjoy and have a great day!
