Everything is OK!

It is about time I get my card posted... First of all I do have to say we had some really bad storms come though last night so I did not get my card post but I thought I would get it done this morning but I have to tell you when I opened up the blinds and seen all the wonderful birds in my back yard I forgot about everything.. Love watching birds and if you do I have taken some pictures of some that stopped by today and spent sometime with me and I enjoyed every minute. If you are not interested in birds the end of the posting you might not be interested in, just go pass it. It is time for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and for this week the twist is to add some embossing to your card can be wet or day.

The inks I used are Kaleidacolors inks, the sets are desert heat, blue breeze and melon melody. Used the Dots embossing folder and added some white ink from Dr Ph Martin's, I got it at Hobby Lobby. The image I used from MHK designs is called Butterfly Wisdom and you can fine it here.
Added some Stampendous Fran-Tage white mica fragments and used some heat and stick embossing power along with versa marker watermark pen. For the center of the butterfly used with the versa marker watermark pen added some Blue embossing puffs and heat set that. You can see the white ink here better. Added Viva pearl pen color ice white to the butterfly.
This sentiment is from Stampin up.
Stamped the sentiment with the Kaleidacolor ink blue breeze and the butterflies for the inside. The stamp set is from The Angel Company and this sentiment is from Stampendous.
This is how the inside turned out.
Wanted to show you a couple views of the butterfly it turned out just stunning. After coloring with the sponges used wink of Stella clear and also added the clear over the blue puff. This a font view.

Here are some of the pictures I took today. I hope you enjoy them.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy birds as much as I do. I will not talk much, just tell you what the birds are. Have a super week end.
Their was 5 Rose Breasted Gosbeak and I could not get a picture of them all together.

When I saw your card pop up in my feed reader, I think I actually said "WOW!" This card is so bright and vibrant like a firework display!! I love the rainbow effect in your background along with that beautifully shimmery butterfly!! Stunning card today Pat!! Really enjoyed seeing all of your pretty bird photos too! Hubby and I enjoy watching them all year long! :) Have a great weekend! HUGS

Beautiful, Pat, you did a great job with that background and the different techniques you used. It is so vibrant and colorful! Love the inside as well!
I enjoyed seeing your assortment of birds! It was a good bird day for sure!

What a perfect card, Pat, to accompany these incredibly hued birds! Yes, I do, indeed, enjoy watching birds. Sometimes I feel like a stalker! LOL And often, I think of how very blessed I am to live where I do. Think of all the people who live in large cities and seldom see the birds we enjoy feeding and watering! How fun to watch the sprinklers spray their water on the plants, and then watch the birds so happily "swim" in the leaves and branches as they cool off in the hot, humid afternoons. Your card beautifully captures Nature's colors with lots of movement in the white textures. And the sentiment is fantastic. I have not used my K-inks forever! I wonder if they are still good? I need to look! Thank you for the inspiration, and the glimpse into the beauties of your life after the storm. hugs, de

This feels like a firework of a card, fantastic colors and even though there's very little detailing on your card (which is rare for you) it just looks amazing!

Carrie said...

Thanks for all the lovely bird pictures, too! That's so fun that you were able to capture so many great shots in one day!

Hi, Pat! I came over to see your Scrapy Land project up close, but couldn't find the post. Perhaps didn't schedule yet, but got treated to this awesome card instead! Beautiful colors and a great design!

As for your birds, they are beautiful and I'm so happy you shared your perfect photography with us! You get such an amazing variety of colorful birds! And that Robin taking a bath is hilarious! Hugs to you!
