A little birdie told me.......

Hello my crafty friends.  Today I wanted to post a card I made with my Close to My Heart supplies.  I bought the Colonial white Die cut cards and envelopes and the stamp set. Life is Tweet, recent;y and decided to dig them out and make a card with them.   I used the papers from the Florentine collection,   I cut the mat with :Brown bag and then layered the Florentine paper..then I took a chip board tag and inked it with Tim Holtz walnut stain, cut a piece of colonial white and a piece of Florentine , inked them and the adhered them to the tag, and took the little flowers in the Life is Tweet set and stamped with the Autumn terracotta from CTMH. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment, " a little birdie told me"  in Olive ink.

I then added a butterfly that I got from MB Treasurista and tied some twine through the hole in the tag with Twine from Close to My Heart.    For the flap on the end, I used the same papers and stamp set to add flowers along the edge, and colored the flowers in with coordinating marker.

On the inside of the card I mated with Kraft card stock and Florentine papers amd stamped the image with Cocoa ink and a stamp from Life is Tweet.  I added a few small rhinestones from CTMH and there you have it!!  It's your Anniversary!!  I hope you like today;s project and you will want to come back again....have a crafty day............  Cathy
