I was recently invited to join a swap that was hosted by Laura Pinto Nguyen and this is the card I created for it. This card is FULL of new Spring Mini products. The stamp sets that I chose were Nature Walk and You're a Gem. I absolutely love anything with birds, birdcages or butterflies so Nature Walk was right up my alley. I love the vintage feel to it. Some new accessories that I used were the Rose Red Seam Binding (OMG, love it!) and the Vintage Flower Adornments. I love these little roses, just put a dimensional on the back and you are ready to go. I also used the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Folder to add a little flair to the base of my card. I also added a couple of our smallest adhesive pearls to the upper right hand corner of the card. The color combo that I chose for this project is Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Rose Red, River Rock and Very Vanilla. I sponged a little bit of Soft Suede around the edges of some of the layers to add a little more "vintage" to the card. The words, "love life, live life" are from You're a Gem and I punched and mounted them with the Small, Large and Scalloped Oval Punches. What do you think?
