Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede and Crumb Cake combine to feature this sweet little American Gold Finch from the Moon Lake Stamp Set.

The Gold Finches at my feeders this year have been spectacular.  Sometimes hard to distinguish the Pine Siskins and the Pine Warblers as they all changed their colors from Winter to Spring.  I wanted to showcase the Hearth and Home Thinlet Set and I think it turned out nicely, don’t you agree?

Crumb Cake and Soft Suede

The inside was finished easily, I cut a piece of Soft Suede and layered it with a piece of Very Vanilla. Then carefully blocking off the limb and the bird I stamped the grass and part of the limb in Soft Suede on the lower left side.  I completed the card using the Aqua Painters and watercoloring the stamped image using Hello Honey and Wild Wasbi Ink.  I again stamped on the bottom of the image on the left botton of the envelope and lined the envelope in Hello Honey DSP from the 2014-2016 Color Collections.  The Envelope is in Crumb Cake.
