Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well what a busy day, all errands done and hair is done too, added a few blonde highlights for the summer and it does make a difference.  I love it :)

Tonight's card is made for the One Word Wonder on Mad Crafters Giggle Facebook group.  The word is nature. I have used Imagination Crafts products for this card.


1. 7 x 7 cream square card which I have matted and layered pale green pearlescent card.
2. The patterned card is called "Gathering Thoughts" which I have stencilled the tree and birds from one stencil with Light Copper Sparkle Medium and part of the Apple Blossom stencil in the top right hand corner with Sage Green Sparkle Medium
3. I added 2 bird wooden flourishes to two of the corners and a floral wooden butterfly.
4. To finish off I added the birthday sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
