A Bicycle Card and a Bird



We enjoyed more seasonal weather again today – almost 70F in town but a wee bit cooler at the lake. They were calling for rain this afternoon (and we got it) so we headed back to Rondeau Provincial Park for more birding this morning – another 9,596 steps today! We did a little more birding after the rain shower but didn’t see many more and called it a day. We saw more birds than other days but they were up so high in the trees it was impossible to get a good shot of them….except this one!


This was the only good photo of the day!

Today’s card is one that was quick to do but turned out quite nice.


The stamped image is from HOTP (Paper Wishes) and as you can see, very little colouring to do on it. The little flowers come with the stamp, as well as the handle bar streamers, and I had the flowers coming out of the basket and blowing away. The stamped image was mounted on a light green and then a darker green rectangle die cut with the Spellbinders Create-A-Card die set. The card base opens at the top and it is just a piece of the light green cardstock. I had that swirly paper in the stash and it was cut that size and it matched both greens. I didn’t have enough of the dark green to go underneath the swirly paper so I just cut two ¼” strips and taped them to each side and then glued the entire piece down. The lightest green bit was also in my stash so I just did a bit of a decorative edge on it, stamped the sentiment and heart and placed it under the rectangles. Quick and easy but I like it. This would be a good card for a teenage girl or pre-teen or even an adult.

That’s all for a Monday

Cheers
Violet
