The bird image is one you know from Annaís blog. I love this image, and was so happy that I was a lemming and just ordered whatever Lori did. It was stamped in Palette Noir on Shimmery White, and watercolored with an aquapainter and watercolor crayons. I added a few Tiny primas (thanks, Tracy!) and some Stickles, and then used the same ink to stamp a Papertrey sentiment.
I went to Michaelís earlier this week, and found two slabs of K & Co. Amy Butler double-sided designer mat pads. They matched my wonderful tote from eP, so I had to buy them both! One of the patterns is the pretty leafy stuff on the left. The reverse is the olive-y looking pattern. The stripes are from yet another sheet. (The card base is Certainly Celery, and there are layers of Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip in there, too)
Dotted organdy ribbon is from May Arts, and itís tied up with some won-der-ful grosgrain that I bought a huge spool of at Fabric Barn in SoCal. Itís such a pretty green, and worked really well with this card.

The paper is just gorgeous, the perfect backdrop for Anna's birdie! I love the way you tied the ribbon...do you just tie 3 pieces in a knot or tie one around the other 2...hmmm, I'll try both ways! TFS!
