I created this card using glossy card stock (Astralux), Distress ink (Iced Spruce), and a cuttlebug embossing folder. I applied ink to the folder, then spritzed it with a little water. I really liked the shabby chic effect this gave where is cracked the card surface. The little bird is a Prima resin piece and the sentiment is from a stamp set called Art Sayings by Sam Poole. The sentiment was stamped onto cream linen card stock cut using Spellbinders (Oval and scallop oval). The ribbon is seam binding from Wild Orchid crafts.
