Now don't do what I did...I used Basic Gray instead of Smoky Slate! Call the challenge police! Maybe that's why I had a hard time getting the Basic Gray to work in my design!?? Next time I'll be sure to double check my colors before adhering everything!
I made this card at the request of my husband. He wanted to give his administrative assistant a special card along with a gift for Administrative Assistants Week. I tried to make it special for her and hope she likes it.
Since Betsy's Blossom's is on the retirement list I wanted to give it a little more love before it's gone for good. The bird is heat embossing using Early Espresso embossing powder. I did the bird twice, once on Whisper White and then again on Crisp Cantaloupe using just the Crisp Cantaloupe wings to layer on the other bird with dimensionals.
I prettied it up using a healthy sprinkling of rhinestones, ruffled stretch ribbon and a twine bow.
For my layout I used the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches as well. So many things to do with that center panel!
I hope you'll play along with us at Fab Friday. Check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with and add your creation to the gallery!
