Thoughts of You...

How often do you take the time to adorn the "inside" of your wonderful homemade card?  Sometimes I leave my biggest presentation for the "inside" rather than the "outside" of my card as a nice little change of pace.

Critter Tops (Birdie Top) from Doodle Pantry was the perfect image to adorn and surround the sweet and simple poem on the inside of the card.  I choose "yellow" to work with because research says it is the least favorite color chosen by people....I was feeling up to the challenge.  My inspiration: Kittie Kraft, check out her awesome blog.

  1. What a beautiful card inside and out. I 'do' the inside on my special cards but on others I just put an insert in :o)

  3. Beautiful, Cely! This could have easily been TWO cards! :0) I love all the layers on the front, and the peeking bird image inside is a perfect way to doll up the sentiment!

  7. Your so right... the inside of my cards are often neglected. Your bright and sunny card is a delight. Did you ink inside the embossing folder to get that effect?
