Decoupage Bird and Blooms


I made this card when I was really struggling with an acute episode of 'no mojo', and I resorted to a magazine  kit.  
I chose this one because of the colours, as I know the recipient loves this colour palette.

I love the dimension and glitter this card has - subtle, but fabulous

The only thing I added was the faux stitched border

Love the sentiment on this topper panel, all part of the large kit.

I decorated the inside with this glittery panel

I love how the added elements all came together on the main panel to create a card that my friend loved.

Hi Maxine, a beautiful card, I always feel that I am somehow cheating when I only used card kits or paper pads with all the elements included. Love the set you have used and the little hummingbird looks great with the glittery feathers. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. We are in for a wet one... Megan

If this is what missing mojo looks like, sign me up! lol You might have used a kit, but you still had to pull it all together and this card is simple gorgeous Maxine! I love the soft color pallet too and the glittery accents. I can imagine your friend loved this card as I do too. Besides, it has on of my favorite birds on it. I love watching the hummers, although they will be leaving soon and I will have to wait until next spring to see them again. Hugs, Brenda

Sometimes the kits are a real boon when we are short on ideas. It is a dear little bird and very pretty colours. I loved the two little birds on a gold background in you previous post too. Kate x

It's a beautiful card design and all the little details you added made it even more gorgeous! Sure nice to have some kits around for those times when we are not so enthused or feeling up to being creative.

JD/ Jill said...

Pretty card! And I depend on my magazines a lot help me get inspiration!

Neet said...

Kit or no kit, you have made a beautiful card. I just hope your mojo has been given the necessary jolt to get back to you now. Such a pretty colour palette - and I love the glitter.
Blessings Neet x
