I selected a soft beige card stock for my 4.5 x 5.5 card base. Below the red polka dot paper I added a layer of distressed black card stock. All of my remaining DP layers have the same black card stock matting. Each panel has a botanical theme to it. The two left panels were dry embossed and distressed. This scripture stamp may be found in Our Daily Bread Designs' Scripture Collection 7 set. I nestled a Kaisercraft jet flourish (cut, manipulated and strategically placed) under the die cut panel. The rose is one I created using McGill's Rose Paper Punch set. I added a few paper punches twigs. The metal bird is a new item by Momenta I found at a local Michaels. I think he looks so "tweet." TFL!
