As the weather has been awful here today (torrential rain!) it was a good opportunity to get on with some crafting. Here is the first of 3 cards I made today, all for challenges. This first card is for Arty Girlz Challenge 46 which was to create something with a vintage theme. The background paper is by Laura Ashley and the lovely stamp showing birds feeding their young in the nest was won on Ebay and as it has no markings on the wood mount I do not know who manufactured it. I used smokey grey Versafine and Stampin Up teal coloured inks to tone in with the base card and LA paper. The friends sentiment is by HOTP and like the bird image is matted onto silver mirri card. To finish off the card I added an organzi ribbon in ivory from Joanna Sheen down the side and 2 matching feathers behind the sentiment.
