So Special...

I love Hero Arts stamps!

The branch is a new stamp from Hero Arts called Flower and Leaf Branch . I stamped it across the top of the paper to hold the Bird in Cage , then stamped portions of it twice more. The leaves and flowers were colored with Tombow markers and a blender pen.

The flowers were embellished with Small Blossom Gemstones , and Assorted Gemstone Crystals also from Hero Arts.


The sentiment is from the Hero Arts So Many Messages stamp set. I used my circle Nestabilities to cut and frame it.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Sultry paper pad, and the ribbon is May Arts Olive Checker ribbon. Those narrow ribbons really come in handy!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fabulous Friday!

This is a really beautiful card; love how you combined the 2 stamps, and how the colours of the branch echos the DP. TFS: Tinla
