Thank you card...

Hello fellow Crafters,

My mother did something really nice for me and my husband and I wanted to say thank you,  so I made her this thank you card. I chose this bird because at the moment my mum is watching a pair of Blue tits feeding their young in a nesting box she has hanging on the wall of her balcony and she is really enjoying that.

I took a white card blank and stencilled the pattern on it with 'Faded Jeans' Distress Ink. I then doodled around the edge. I love this type of border and seem to be a bit addicted to them at the moment. I then cut another piece of paper and stamped the bird on it together with the sentiment. I then stamped the bird in another piece of card stock and coloured it with Copics, clear embossed it and cut it out. Next I adhered the bird onto the stamped image on the paper. I also wrapped some black and white bakers twine around and tied it in a bow. I adhered this little panel to the card with dimensional adhesive. That was it ! 

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it.... (and hope my mum likes it too !)
