Distressed Nature


No I haven't been out bothering birds and butterflies, I'm sure my cat Salem is doing enough of that for the whole road! At our old house we only had paving, no grass so you didn't really see butterflies around much and he thinks that they are amazing.

I made a distressed anniversary card a couple of weeks ago and I enjoyed the process so much that I decided to give it another go with the Nature Walk stamp set. Now I know at the weekend I said I would try and use DSP in every card until the new catalogue launch, but for this card I made my own DSP form the row of eggs. That is one one the many fabulous things about Stampin' up! The stamp sets are put together so that you needn't use loads of extras if you don't want to.

I love the rough edges, and spritzing, it's so much fun to do! I tried to keep this card free from gems and pearls so it could be used for a masculine card if needed, but I thought a little ribbon would be ok as it is grey ribbon!

See you again soon, I hope. xx

Ugh, I can never get birds to look right - now I'm just jealous! It looks great and you're right, it's always good to have a few masculine cards in the stash for those birthdays that creep up on you :)
