Today's card was a time consuming project. I loved Staci's card and so totally wanted to case it, but I didn't have everything she used. So the card came out a bit different than hers, but it sure does look nice.
I started with a regal rose cardbase and layered a piece of chocolate chip after I stamped in part of the heart in the upper right hand corner just to get the pattern that matches the bird body. The bird from the Always stamp is embossed on whisper white paper. I paper pierced it around the edges. I also used the Boho stamp to create a patterned paper on the left and used the linen stamp on the right to give the chocolate some texture.
I hope you enjoy it!


Recipe:
Stamps: Always, Boho Backgrounds
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Accessories: eyelet, ribbon, clear embossing powder

I love your version. It is simpler which is up my alley. My cards never turn out like the ones that I see. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. Yours is awesome.
