Week of Cards Day 2 – A Little Birdie Told Me…

Hi Guys!  I am back for our second day of a week of cards.  With this card I wanted to challenge myself by using things that I have around the studio, but are not my “go to” or “usual favorites.” I have had the Prima vine flower I used on this card forever, because I like the colors, but I find it difficult to use pattern printed flowers.  If put with the wrong papers it can look a little too busy for my taste, but I think I pulled it off.  I used papers and the “A Little Birdie Told Me…” embossed tag from the We R Memory Keepers collection Anthologie.  I used vellum to layer over the first red background paper.  The fiber ribbon, resin corner, wooden icon feather (which I chalk inked), and floral tag under the title tag are all Prima.
