Papertrey Ink's September Blog Hop

I have a card to share for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
 

 This month's challenge was to use this photo as inspiration:


Isn't it lovely? I love the sweet bird, the colours and the black background!
Here's my card:


I combined three stamp sets to make my card: Beautiful Berries: Autumn,
Twig Wreath and Spring Woods, which I stamped onto their coordinating diecuts,
using a combination of Wplus9, PTI and Altenew inks.


I heat embossed the sentiment (from PTI's Winter Woods) in white
and diecut my panel using my Mama Elephant Femme Frames scalloped die.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful. This is, in fact, beyond beautiful, Leigh. That bird, and the foliage encircling that twig wreath make a fabulous focal point. I'm awestruck by this card. Bold and most definitely beautiful. Bev
