Vines, Birds, and Flowers-Embedded Image

First, let me wish all my blogging friends a Happy Easter. If you're travelling, stay safe.
I hope to make it to an Easter cantata this weekend as my community choir is not doing
one for this holiday.

Yes, it is the day I always do a card for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. This week the Queen is Gail aka mamasix. I cased this pretty card of hers. Of course, I changed some things. I do love the embedded image technique. I stamped my background vine and punched a few hydrangeas and then ran through the embossing folder. This embeds the flowers into the panel. My birds are punched and popped on. I also popped up a few of the vine leaves.

Probably won't see you until Monday when I'll have a new card to post. I plan to work in my yard
tomorrow. I think it is supposed to be a beautiful weekend. Yippee!

Beautiful card Brenda, love your colour combo and your stamped BG is so pretty!
Hope you have a great Easter and that you get your yard work done - I'd planned to do that too but the weather forecast is looking a bit rubbish, might just have to do some crafting instead :)

Happy Easter, Benzi. I love this card! Love the dimensional birds. Apologies for not commenting on each card you've done while I was away. Between my e-mail reminders, my readers, and my DT commenting, I have over 1200 stops to make and simply can't find the time to comment on each one! Hugs, my friend.

Love the embedded image. I'll bet this is super cool to see in person, as it has such texture to it. I keep seeing really amazing ways to use that brick EF.
