A Naturally Vintage Birthday

I am busy, busy, busy! Between work, gardening, crafts, and family, I am feeling very overwhelmed. So in my quest to 'keep up', I made one card for four different challenges. And I wish I had a better picture of this card, because it is one of my favorites. It's so pretty in real life. I tried 25 different ways to photograph it, and this was the best I could do. Sorry. I think its the muted colors. I always struggle photographing soft colors. Any photographers out there who have any ideas?

Anyhow, onto my card. This card uses the sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week, and is for both the Crafty Secrets Challenge on PCP (Use Gingham on your card) and Splitcoaststampers (Make a Birthday Card), and my Shabby Chick's Blog Roll Challenge (Make a Nature Card). I used Crafty Secrets 'Garden Girls' and 'Bird Notes'. The Bird is mounted up on dimensionals. The card stock colors are White, Chocolate Chip, and Bordering Blue. The designer papers are SU! 'Parisian Breeze'.

Have a great day! Amy
