Today's card started with Stampendous stamps and dies called "Bird Blossoms". The various pieces were colored with watercolor pencils and watercolor crayons - blended with a water brush.
The background and matting papers are older ones from HOTP. For the border, I took a piece of the same paper I used for matting and drew a couple of lines with embossing ink before heat embossing with white powder. The sentiment was created using stamps from JustRite (Chicken Soup Labels Four, Be Strong) and a die from Spellbinders Labels Four die set. I cut it from the same paper used for the mat & border & heat embossed with white powder. The bird, flower & sentiment are all attached using foam tape for dimension.
For the inside, I used another flower from the set & more of that blue paper I had used for matting:
