Birdy Thank Yous

I have a couple of simple thank you cards to share today...using a Memory Box die ('Madeleine Bird') and My Mind's Eye papers ('Floral Blue' and 'Brights'). I inked the edges using 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink, the scuffed it up a little using my distressing tool, before adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set ('Mini Messages'), and the pearls are from Hobbycraft.

Love the simplicity of this design. It really allows your gorgeous paper combinations to take center stage. The stitching adds lovely texture as does the distressing. Thanks for playing along with our Three or More Patterned Papers at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
