Navy, Lime and Silver PDCC 48

I need a rest!  Had a great but very busy weekend - lots of lovely food and eating (and drinking) out, lots of shopping ( I am a lucky girl-  had a beautiful bracelet and some fabulous shoes bought for me by hubby) and lots of games played with James.  In between all that there was the usual homework and domestic stuff to sort out for this week, so no time for playing in my craft room until today.

The playdate cafe has these colours this week:
Here is my card:
Patterned paper is K & Co. Ribbon is American crafts.  Edge of card is inked with blue ink.
I made the "navyish" background with spray inks, and the foliage is embossed in silver (stamp by SU).

The bird is die cut from metal using a Paperartsy die, then I embossed it with an embossing folder in my cuttlebug.  The next step was to ink it with green alcohol ink.
The eye is a gem coloured with a copic pen, and I outlined the metal bird with the same copic pen.

I am doing a card class for 14 ladies tonight, and then it will be the weekend again! Eeeeeek!

Have a good one!
