Die~Namites Thanks

Hello Everyone!

I have a quick card to share that I have blogged on the Die~Namites Blog today,  using my new Summer Branch die. 

I love this versatile die; it is the perfect accent for just about everything, LOL!  Today I ventured outside of my comfort zone and cut my die cut out of patterned paper.  I adhered these end to end on a River Rock cardstock strip that had been embossed.  I added a stripe of coral (it really is coral even though it looks bright orange here) cs and a scalloped edge of blue patterned paper. 

 I had a scrap of gold heat embossed Spring Doily die cut laying on my desk; as I looked at it, I thought the edge of the die looked like gold braiding.  I trimmed this edge of the die cut and cut it into 3 pieces, adhering them in a scalloped pattern behind my branches and blue scallops. 

I stamped and watercolored my image from Fun Stampers Journey; my bird got a bit lost in the patterned paper, so I used the center circular piece of the gold embossed Spring Doily as a base for the bird.

I love the overall collage style of the card;  I think it is a bit eclectic as well, at least for me!

Thanks so much for stopping by today; have a blessed week!
