To My Lovely Friend

I made this card to send to Linda for the April Card Chain Challenge using the Colour Option (Black, Plum and Lilac) and the Theme Option (Friendship).

I trimmed a piece of pale lilac paper and layered it onto black card before stamping the sentiment in the lower corner.  The panel was then attached to the front of the card blank.  I die cut a branch from black card and attached it across the card, trimming the end so it was level with the black mat layer.  I die cut the birds from lilac and plum card and attached them with Pinflair glue so they sat on top of the branch.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white matt card blank
     Memory Box 'Woodland Branch' and 'Resting Birds' dies
     Clearly Besotted 'Lovely Lilies' sentiment stamp
     Versafine Onyx Black ink
     Snippets of Lili of the Valley 'Timeless Victorian' paper, black textured card, plum and lilac pearlescent card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
     Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - Anything Goes
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies

This is the lovely card I received from Lucille:
