'Sharing and Caring' Budgies

Hi folks! Here's a card I made using the 'Budgerigar' stamp set by Jayne Netley Mayhew.
I think the papers that I used are by DCWV (they were loose in my stash mountain). I used my circle Nestabilities to cut the small aperture and mount. I embossed some of the panels with my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots embossing folder. Just a bit of matting and layering on this card. The images are stamped and painted with Koi water colour paints. I suspended the embossed circle in the aperture with thread sandwiched between the card and the patterned paper. The sentiment also comes as part of the stamp set. I finished off the card with some self adhesive gems.
Ciao for now!

Ohhhh Sandra this is lovely. We both know someone who will love this.

What happened to your 'blog post' thread on CT? I can't find it anywhere, was wanting to ask you a question about a previous post of yours, but it's disappeared.
