Robin Red Breast Redo

This week I am the guest host at Digital 2 for Tuesday. With an image like this, it's easy to create a beautiful card. Cora does an amazing job finding and sharing these vintage visuals. 

I used paper by Colorbok to pick up the colors of the robin. "Hardware" stamps by Crafty Secrets add a touch of elegance to the corners. I used the "out of the box" technique, leaving the bird's tale outside the circle. The sentiment is by Flourishes. The ribbon is Walmart's and the gems are by The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby.

I did my favorite cloud background by using an old CTMH cloud stencil and chalks. A bit of Distress Ink by Ranger finishes the card.

I am entering this card in some challenges...

Love to Create Challenge - Show Us Your Ribbon or Twine

I hope you will take a moment to visit Cora's site. It's amazing!
