I made this for this weeks "ways to use it - Staples challenge".
Main card is taken with teal, next is Tres Jolie - floral stripes. I stitched around the edges with a blanket stitch on my sewing machine. The Bird image is stamped on whisper white. I stamped the floral images in old olive. I stamped the bird again on dp and cut out. stamped again on taken with teal and just cut out the wing. Used the white gel pen on the wing. coloured the beak and plume with pencil crayons. Distressed and inked up the edges. matted with taken with teal and olive. Used my scalloped scissors on the old olive. Pierced holes around the edges and then stapled from the back side to make my staple frame. added the flower brads. On the sentiment panel I stamped the floral images on whisper white in old olive and then stamped the sentiment in basic black. Used my oval punch. matted with taken with teal, used the scallop scissors. pierced holes in tt and ww. used my black pen for the faux stitching. added the smaller flower brads. Tied on the ribbon and then attached the bird panel and then the sentiment panel.
