Birds and Blooms Window Card...

Hi Peeps, well, I just had to play again at Out of a Hat Creations; Summertime...this time to include my birdies , which is a big part of my summer pleasures, especially watching and hearing them bathe in the bird bath...

I made a window card by recycling a Kleenex box ( since I don't have any of those fancy machines ! ), keeping the tab on the side to create more movement to the card. Since it is an oversized card, I recycled cereal boxes to use as cardstock...

I used these gorgeous feathers all around the frame:

Distressed some lace to use around my flowers ; thinking of a bird's nest.

For the flip side of the frame, I embossed in green and gold.
I fell in love with this image when I saw it as a free download on Trisha's blog French Kissed...I love that the writing is in french!!!


Thanks for peeking, love G.

  4. Giselle, I can't thank you enough for starting my week on such a bright note! Merci beaucoup for crediting FrenchKissed as your bird image source. I love the lacey strings you added around the flowers -- perfect for a bird's nest:) Have your ears been burning? I was talking about you on my blog when I posted this week's free download.
