I made this card for Inspiration Challenge IC146. For this challenge we were referred to Mondo Dishes by Rosanna, Inc., a line of dishware and accessories designed by Rosanna Bowles. What a wonderful choice for inspiration! I found several collections I would love to have in my home, never mind my card collection, and I chose several to make cards with today. This card was inspired by her “Four Calling Birds” collection. You can see this set of dishes here: http://www.rosannainc.com/mm5/mercha...egory_Code=119
On this card I tried my hand at paper piercing, which is something I had not done in quite some time. I pierced along the lace edge of the central gold panel. I stamped a bird and leaf motif from the “Birds Galore” collection on an oval medallion, embossed it in gold, and then inked stitch lines with a gold pen around the edge. I had a small scrap of 3” wide wire edged gold ribbon that seemed perfect for this card and I secured it behind the central medallion, puffed at the top and flared at the bottom.
