Craft and Red Thinking of You

This card is created for this week's challenge At Joan's Gardens, where we are to use craft colored paper (and red), and a bird  to create our card.   The sentiment is from Sizzix Textured Impressions Butterfly Migration set (656982) that is embossed with Core d'inations craft colored paper, sanded, then bunished with Tim Holtz Old Walnut Distressing ink. There are two little birds on the top of this embossing folder. The edges are punched with an old Emagination punch.  The red poppy is created with a Sizzix die from Susan's Garden collection (the Poppy  #658416). The  little bird is stamped onto a C&K decorator paper matte  with Old Walnut distressing ink using a La Blanche Stamp (#1276)  All of these products are available at Joan's gardens except the old Emagination punches.

The center oval is cut with a Lifestyle Crafts oval die, and burnished with Pretty in Pink (SU) ink. The edges are all  outlined with a Gelly Roll Clear Star pen.
