I guess I'm in a pink and brown mood of late. This is a thank-you card for my grandmother. This year she gave money for Christmas and wanted to see what I spent it on. What did I spend it on? A Sizzix texture boutique and a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders. (showcased on the bird and the white background).
The bird file was free. If you like it grab it here. The swirl came out of the bird's tummy :) The intricate circles are a digital stamp by Stef aka Glitterbabe that she allowed me to cut with my cricut~so sweet of her! The sentiment I created with SCAL2, not sure what font is was~sorry!
The brown/gold paper is a wallpaper sample and the brown and pink is left over from another card-not sure the brand. The embossing folder is Stylized Flower by Provocraft. The glitter is generic stickles I picked up at Michael's for a dollar! Ribbon and lace, from the stash. Button from the local store Scrapbook Friend'z (they let you pick a scoop of randoms for $.50!
