This picture is in the altered frame I made for last Wednesday's design team blog hop. While working on the project, I ended up with extra copies of the picture so I turned one into a photo card. The map is a 12 x 12" scrapbook patterned paper, Travel Map, from the Travel Collection by Adornit/Carolee's Creations. (If you're a follower of this blog than you know the QKD Design Team participated in Adornit's July 31 Blog Hop. Once again, I teamed up Adornit paper with QKD stamps.) I have some old jewelry from my aunt. I re-purposed this bird by pinning it to a felt flower. I wanted a more open feel to this card so I used red (to match the bird's eye) Kaiser pearls along the bottom. The sentiment is from the QKD Take a Journey Greetings set: Take only memories leave nothing but footprints (Chief Seattle). (Tip: If you're worried about stamping a perfect image on your finished card, try stamping on acetate or vellum and adding it for a see-through affect.) The photo and the QKD sentiment stamp are a perfect match, don't you think? I hope you have time to scrap a lot this Saturday.
