Everyday Brings New Life

"Everyday brings new life". This phrase is one of the stamps in the Mark's Finest Papers Ferns and Chickadee set. According to the Mark's Finest Paper's blog, the phrase is also something Faith's grandfather told her the night before he passed away. Ironically, it's also something my own grandfather would have said and speaks to my own heart.

When making the card this last weekend, I wanted to go with clean and simple so the phrase could just speak for itself, plus I was still dealing with a migraine.

For my second card, I stayed with the clean and simple technique and showcased the bird's nest sitting on a layer of ferns. I double layered the nest for a little added dimension before adding a sheer white organdy ribbon.
