Simple Sundays .....

 
Good Morning and
 a blessed Sunday to you!
 
  
 
 
For today's Simple Sunday I'm showing you a
simple card I made this week.
This lovely bird on a dogwood branch stamp is from Stampavie
and is the image Tracie sent us in the Secret Sisters
card group as a Mystery Image -
 until the image arrives, we don't know what it is!
I adore it!
I own quite a few Stampavie stamps but have not seen this one
and am so grateful Tracie sent this one out to use ♥



 I knew I wanted to make a shadowbox card when I was looking around
for ideas on fancy folds + this one jumped out at me to try.
At first, the image frame shadowbox had a layer of dsp,
but it covered up too much of the image and the bird
 faded too far back into the card.
So I started again with a new box panel but left it plain.
I loved this image so much,
I am already working on my 2nd card - stay tuned! ♥


 
 
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  4. So cute Kelly. The little bird is so precious and you can feel the fluff. Great fancy fold card, will have to give it a try.

    In answer to a blog post, yes, you can use the spiral flower die cut in the cuddlebug die cutter.
