Nature at FSC!

Nature is all around us in so many forms and the current Fashionable Stamping challenge is just that, "Nature."  Now there is one week left to join in the fun and show us some Nature and Stamping in your art!  There is always a prize from Cottage Crafts and a chance to be among the Top 3 or be in the Saturday Spotlight, so pop over and check it out and see what my amazing DT Sisters have created to give you inspiration! 
For my card, I wanted to keep it easy to mail!  The two background stamps I used are from Stampin Up and Stamp Camp.  The bird image was stamped with Sepia Archival ink and heat set, then I added a little Stickles to the flower centers.  This was difficult to capture in the photo, but there is a hint of shimmer.  All edges were distress and inked with Sepia.  The lace was dyed with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  The pink panel was stamped in Stampin Up Creamy Caramel.  Since Simon Says Stamp and Show is looking for "A Bit of Brown," we are on route there! 

As always, I do very much appreciate your taking time from your day to visit and leave a comment.  I know in the Summer, we all get so busy and time is precious!  We have had so much going on between visitors, visiting and house "things," so I am excited whenever I get that extra craft time in!  Enjoy the weekend!
