Birds and Nature Birthday

Today I have another card requested by the same friend I made a card for on Wednesday - scroll down or see hereThis card is for her mother -  who loves birds and nature.  
(I made this bird/nature project for her mother last Valentine's Day.)
I knew I wanted to use a recently purchased stamp set -  Spring Woods by PTI because of the lovely multi-stamp bird images - and it also has a coordinating Spring Woods Die Set.   I white embossed the sentiment from the Keep It Simple: Birthday II set onto black cardstock.  The background panel is embossed with Eileen Hull's Basket Weave embossing folder from Sizzix.
I love stamping images on the inside of special cards  - this sentiment is from Tucked In Birthday from PTI.

I'm linking my card to:

This is beautiful - simple yet elegant - I love how the black strip is not a solid piece and that you did the inside to match as well! The recipient is sure to love it!

Gorgeous card Julia. So much wonderful texture from your background. And so pretty with your bird and blooming branch images. The split sentiment banner is very creative and I like how it extends beyond the sides of the card front. And gorgeous inside of the card too. Very special card that your friend is going to love to give to her mom. xx
