A Card and a Layout!

Today, I'm participating in the Die Cuts R Us Challenge: Earth Day. I made this card with supplies keeping "Earth friendly" in mind. The birds are stamped on a piece of ravelled muslin and the papers are all scraps. I distressed the edges and inked them to make the card go in the direction of being a bit shabby, then hand stitched the edge of the yellow paper before attaching to the card. Enjoy!

And, as promised, the Christmas layout I did on my scrap weekend:

A close up of the embellies... my handmade buttons and star chipboard!

Have a good night!
