Jayne Netley Mayhew 'Robin & Wren' card

Hi folks! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Here is a card that I made using the 'Robin' and 'Wren' rubber stamp sets from Joanna Sheen's recently released Jayne Netley Mayhew collection.
I used the WS Zig Zag template to make the card. I heat embossed the flower and leaf spray (from the Wren set) randomly all over the brown outer Zig Zags with copper powder. I used a handmade textured card for the inner Zig Zags, inked and distressed the edges.
I used my Label Nestabilities to create the panels which I embossed on my Cuttlebug and then rubbed on Copper Metallic rub (like a wax) to highlight some of the embossed detail. The sentiments are part of the stamp sets. I made the flowers by using my Martha Stewart flower and leaf punches. I shaped and inked the edges before adhering adding dimensional glitter glue to the centres as a finishing touch.
I stamped the birds, coloured them with my Copic Markers, carefully cut them out and adhered them to the panels with dimensional glue gel.
I simply stamped and embossed the Robin with gold embossing powder on the front panel; added more flowers to embellish and set a large eyelet which I used to thread some sheer ribbon to act as a closure.
Hope you like my card.
Ciao for now!

Sandra, I don't know how you manage to come up with so many wonderful ideas, but you just get better and better.
This card is wonderful and would be perfect for male cards or for people who don't do 'girly' (can't understand that myself LOL!)

Fantastic card Sandra I really must get some of that metallic rub I think it enhances your embossing beautifully. Lovely choice of colours and wonderful colouring as always.

Hi Sandra. I've caught up with the C&C programme now and agree, these stamps are truly beautiful. I also spotted one of your cards which looked beautiful in real life.
I would struggle to pick a favourite and love both your Swans and the Wren. They are both so soft and subtle, your colours are beautiful. It must be lovely to be given such stunning images to work with.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
