Took advantage of our County game being cancelled today and the 'tidy' (ish) workspace is now the usual bomb site!

This stamp is becoming one of my more versatile buys and I have made a couple of cards with it today.
The others I will post at a later date but I have entered this into the 'Something Completely Different' challenge which this week is a Teal/Turquoise and Brown colour combination on a 6" x 4" postcard.

The background paper is from the Making Memories 'Boho Chic' book and I inked the edges using Azure Blue ink. I stamped birdie using brown Stazon onto a piece of pale blue vellum. I was worried in case the vellum would make the turquoise colour look 'washed out' but thankfully all was well when I attached it to the background paper! The flowers were secured with contrasting brads and the metal 'dreams' embellishment was a free gift from a paper crafting magazine about 4 years ago and I have never used - I thought the bottom of the card looked 'naked' and tipped out a few more drawers looking for something to finish the piece and found the metal word charms!

Hi Viv, great card - I have lots of things tucked away which I never use - forgotten - until the time when they just seem to fit the bill. Great minds, heh? And yes a great stamp.
