Bluebird

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:
