This week our sponsor for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is Simon Says Stamp, where the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate. Whoo-hoo!!
I am totally not being patriotic for this post [hangs head in shame] but I've honestly never sent a patriotic card. Maybe I should! But for now, my red white and blue creation is, instead, a message of hope and rebirth.
A cardinal sitting on her nest, waiting for her chicks to hatch. The best is definitely just about to come!
The bird is cut from my son's holey pajama top. On the non-holey part (yes, I save EVERY thing!) Her nest is made from a strand of wrapped burlap, which ended up being the most difficult part of this card. It's inspired from the Easter egg bird nests I made this year. The white branch divides the card base. Finally, the sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps' first card set, Truth Is.
Sure hope to see you in the gallery! And don't forget to check out the other red, white, and blue lovelies from the fantastic design team, if you haven't already!
Thanks so much for looking!
