This is a Mother's Day card, my mother-in-law loves birds so I try to use them as a focus when I can. This picture highlights the brown in around the focal image quite a bit but it really does not stand out that way in real life. I have been using Doublemates cardstock, it is doublesided with coordinating colors on each side with no white center for my layers.
The flower is a 2-D design, I used Sizzex flower #4 die cut to create. The first layer is the Chocolate malt cardstock with the second layer DP, I used foam tape in between. For the circle dies I used Spellbinders Nestabilites, Circle and Circle Scallops.
I added Kaiser Craft pearls to finish it all off, I though they matched the lace ribbon nicely.

It took me awhile to get the hang of working with the Hot of the Press Dazzles but now I love them. Paperwishes has a large selection. I did not even might cutting out the little coffee bean at the bottom.
Supplies: Cream, brown and craft cardstock, Designer paper - Flair Designs - What's Cooking Coffee Talk, HOTP –Coffee and Tea Dazzles.
I have the nastiest cold that arrived last weekend. It is safe to say that there was no creativity flowing in my craft room this week. If I am lucky I might play with some cardstock this up coming weekend.
