One-Layer Wednesday #21

One of the guys at the office ordered a set of birthday cards from me. He stopped by later in the afternoon and said "That purple card (pause) was pretty." Aww, what a nice compliment! He asked for another one of those. Suh-weet! I will put it on his tab (yes, like they do at the bar).

This week's one-layer Wednesday (#21) is brought to you by nature. My instinct was to go with leaves given that tomorrow is the first day of fall (buh-bye summer), but I've used leaves in my cards recently. I decided to go with a bird scene instead. After I stamped the bird, owl and vine, it was time to pick a sentiment. ::rummage, rummage:: Ah ha! I found a sentiment that I hadn't used before, but I thought it was perfect for the scene in the card. Perhaps an owl and bird wouldn't be BFFs, but I think they could cohabitate in the woods, right? One can have a creative imagination.

Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Deep Green, Prussian Blue, Dark Brown, Chestnut Roan, Dark Peony
Stamp: The Paper Company Studio- Whimsical Birds (bird, owl), The Paper Company Studio- Jungle (vine), Fiskars- Girlfriends (sentiment), Heidi Grace Designs- Paradise (flower)
