Be grateful (by Miranda)

Hello there,

Today my 3rd and last guest DT post for now. Again I have used the lovely Crafty Individuals patterned paper pad 6"x6" (weekend in Seville) and coloured them using color pencils.

This time I have used the 'Bird of Joy' stamp. I stamped direct onto the patterned paper and coloured it using color pencils. After attaching it to the right front flap I decoupaged it.
When I mounted this stamp I cut of the words from the bird so I can use them separately. But it is a risky job.......

Here you can see the card........

On the left flap I stamped one of the beautiful Art deco floral corners
Also coloured with pencils. Than I stamped the words from the 'Words of Gratitude' and die cut it.

On the inside of the card I used the full paper because it has such a beautiful framed pattern. Only stamped the sentiment from the Words of gratitude onto it. Such a beautiful and true sentiment.

And here the card from another point of view.......when it's closed.....

Well, I hope you liked it and maybe you get some inspiration to take out your patterned papers and have a play!
Thanks for your visit and always appreciate your comments,

Till next time,
