Bless your Nest - Housewarming Card and Tag

Hi and happy September, folks! Lynne here and I have to admit that time has been flying by so quickly that I still haven't quite figured out what happened to May and June yet, and now autumn is on the way.

While I'm experiencing the "empty nest" right now and feeling a little lost, I'm also excited that my very best friend is going to be moving into a new "nest" in a couple weeks, and rather than 45 minutes away from me, she will be only about 3 minutes away! That makes me a happy little birdie, so I made this card and gift tag for her to celebrate the occasion:

I used the beautiful Blue Fern Studios' "Frolic" paper collection which inspired me with the bird theme, and the sweet chipboard frames and flourish from Gina's set them off perfectly. I painted the pieces with light tan acrylic paint, then dry-brushed them lightly with blue and black to coordinate with the papers. Super-simple, but I was happy with the effect!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and may your autumn-and your nest-be blessed!
