Papertrey Blog Hop with Desk Top Organizer

I love these templates because half the work is done for us. I made these notecards for a good friend. She has a garden gift shop called Holly Hut which is on the way to Mt. Ranier. She would love it if a bird came to visit while she was sipping some tea. I used Everyday Classics for this set, some SU! paper and Vintage Cream cardstock. I was originally going to put a personalized sentiment on these notecards but loved how this one just nestled in next to the oval so nicely.

I hand-embroidered the wing in this little birdy. I used 7mm verigated ribbon that matches the colors in the Cosmo Cricket floral paper to make a gathered ribbon rose. I also added some leaves and feather stitching. Then I machine-stitched the bird to the paper.
