Zeus and Zoe - Thank You

Hi Ladies,

First up I would like to say that I am loving all the gorgeous entries for this month's word challenge at Zeus and Zoe... keep them coming!!  For details on how to enter click HERE.

Here is  my 2nd post for the week.  I have a card to share with you using vintage trinkets and pp's from my Zeus and Zoe Kit.  Pop in and visit Marivic's Zeus and Zoe Etsy store, to see all her gorgeous goodies and vintage elements available for purchase.

This card was created for a close friend to send her a special thank you.  All the pattern papers and embellishments except for the fussy cut bird cage and gingham ribbon came from my Zeus and Zoe Kit.

I love altering my pp's with mixed media techniques... on this card I used gesso, a mask and some inks to add a little texture.  I then fussy cut the flourishes and greeting which were layered with foam tape to add some dimension, and finished the card off with a gorgeous vintage bird charm, a pretty pearl butterfly pin and a border of vintage lace.

Other materials used:  Bo Bunny pp, Craft Queen gingham ribbon, Crafters Workshop stencil, Spellbinders die, gesso, Versamagic and Tim Holtz Distress inks

Thanks so much for stopping by
