This card is for my other half whose birthday is on Thursday. I'm pretty sure he won't look on here ! It's also another 8 x 8 inch card. I'm starting to get used to the extra space ! I started with the background and stamped randomly using Darkroom Door photographic and bird stamps. I did use a Tim Holtz mask, but as the design grew I covered it up !! I used a piece of DP and tore the edges and stamped the small birds from the Darkroom Door stamp set. I then tore a page from an old book and gave it the DI treatment with Forest Moss and Bundled Sage. The thin vertical panel is a stamp from the Tim Holtz Stuff to Say set. The main image and text are also from the Darkroom Door bird set and I've made photo corners for it.
The swirls are made using the Tim Holtz Mini Flourish which I've blended Distress Ink over and then painted with Crackle paint. The tickets are stamped using the Stuff to Say set and the all important ribbon is made using seam binding which I've coloured using Forest Moss Distress Stains. The corner embellishments are Candi by Craftwork Cards. The sentiment is also from the Darkroom Door bird set and I've cut it out using a Fancy tag and added a Philosophy tag.
