Cardinal Tag on Blue Stripes

A card with a tag, for this week's Papertrey Ink "make it Monday" challenge to incorporate packaging dies (including tags) into our cards.  I'm getting more comfortable designing with tags on my cards ... for some reason, it just doesn't come naturally to me, though it's really so simple.  The bird is bright and cheerful, with a bit of green grass for a setting, and some red and green elements above and below.  Thanks, Lizzie, for your challenge and inspiration!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) pure poppy (red), ripe avocado (green), and stamper's select white.
  • Patterned paper is from PTI blueberry sky (blue) pattern pack (tone-on-tone prints - retired).
  • Twine is by We R Memory Keepers.
  • Dies are PTI tag sale #6 (tag and reinforcement), PTI winter woods, and My Favorite Things fresh cut grass.
  • The sentiment "just a note" is from PTI splits: just a note, the double line is from PTI fill in the blank (retired), and the cardinal detail is from PTI winter woods, stamped with PTI ripe avocado, pure poppy, and true black ink cubes.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.
