This card is almost entirely made using................

my good and faithful old Craft Robo and some very nice Silhouette digital cutting files.  Next Saturday is my best crafting friends Mother's birthday and I wanted to make a special card for Patricia and this is what I came up with!

The only items on the card that were not cut using my Craft Robo (I call her "Roberta") was the tiny butterflies and the beaded oval that I used on the inside of the card.

Here is a view of the inside:

I particularly love the tiny bluebird sitting on the fence.  Can you believe how well my "Roberta" cut out those tiny little legs and feet?  And just look at that's just amazing!

Here is a  close-ups of the beaded oval containing the text on the inside of the card:

And last, but not least, is a close-up of the paper pieced gift on the front of the card:

I only used two different papers.  The cream card stock is some that I purchased from Walmart years ago...can't remember who makes it and the lovely blue is a piece of Wausau Paper.  I used my VersaMark "Watermark" and some "Star Dust Transparent" embossing powder on some of the blue paper which really changed the color and I like the contrast.  I sure hope Patricia has a wonderful birthday and likes her card!  Thanks for stopping by!
