Vintage Bird Card

I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with Ali Manning and her Vintage Page Designs Etsy shop and blog. She has created some divine limited edition vintage page and image kits. Her first kit Vintage Birds will be released on thursday 3rd may. Here's my first card with the kit:
I have clear embossed onto the text, then gently sponged to create the background. I then did a little bit of fussy cutting around the kingfisher and popped him onto a pretty die cut. I then added the bow, using some of the gorgeous vintage seam binding that Ali has in her shop.
 I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
  Crafty Mess Challenge Distressing or embossing.
Paper craft bliss vintage Fashionable Stampers Embossing

 Don't forget to pop over to Ali's blog for more details and to see what the other guest designers have come up with.

Have a great week. Debi x
