Card #2 for Joan's Gardens Challenge

Hello All!

Okay ... so I had a little time this morning and 
decided to give the current challenge at Joan's Gardens another try.   
This week's requirements are:
  • Make a Vintage card
  • Use a bird
  • Use a scenic pattern paper
  • Use a die for your sentiment
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens.
I'm actually happier with the outcome of this card over my first entry.  I think it's the colors that I like more than on the other card.  Plus this pretty tag image, which is a part of the KaiserCraft paper pack (purchased at Joan's Gardens) is perfect.  I simply chose one of my Spellbinder die sets that was closest to the shape for the matting panel.

The lower right corner stamping is a part of the paper design but I felt it needed a bit more overlaying design so I stamped it a few times with an OLD 'Rubberstampede' stamp that I had in my stash and Versafine Onyx ink.

Well, today is laundry day so I'd better get out of my crafting cave and take care of that!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS upcoming weekend!
As always . . .
