Grateful!

Hey everyone,
Hope you had/have a wonderful weekend! I managed to make a card over the weekend using new STAMPtember® release from Simon Says Stamp.
I have used Birch Tree Window and Grateful die from the STAMPtember® release along with older die from Simon Says Stamp called Songbird Branch die to make this card.
I die cut a small stitched panel using cream cardstock and Stitched Rectangle die set. Then I die cut the Birch Tree Window in the centre of the panel. I added acetate behind the panel. For the background, I sponged Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Peeled Paint distress ink on watercolour paper. Then I spattered some water, dabbed the water and when dry, sponged some more of the inks. I repeated this process couple of times to build layers. I really wanted the bright ink blue on the background.

I also sponged some autumn colour distress inks – Wild Honey, Craved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon and Crushed Olive distress inks on watercolour paper. Spattered with water and dabbed the excess out. Once dry, I used the leaves die from Songbird Branch die set to die cut several leaves from all these colours. I added these leaves on the blue sponged background panel and adhered the Brich Tree Window panel using foam adhesive to create a shaker element.

I adhered this shaker panel on a stitched rectangle kraft panel which is adhered to the kraft cardbase. For the focal point, I die cut the bird from Songbird Branch die and sponged with distress inks Ricked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Ripe Persimmon. I also sponged a cream scrap cardstock with Espresso Distress ink and die cut the sentiment Grateful. I also die cut the outline of the sentiment using kraft cardstock. I adhered the sentiment on the outline die cut to foam adhered the entire sentiment to the card front. The bird, I adhered using foam as shown. Finally embellished with Espresso sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
