Peace on Earth – by Heidi Blankenship

Peace on Earth. What a truly beautiful thought. Heidi’s card today depicts an absolutely beautiful and peaceful tidbit of life so many of us enjoy -  a bird among the trees.  Though the scene is peaceful, the card itself just POPS with a huge WOW factor! And to make it even better, this card was a very simple make! Heidi will show us how. Take a look:

Isn’t this just absolutely lovely!

It just draws they eye in.

Heidi started with the bird sheet of paper by Wild Rose Studio, using an embossing folder to add some corner greenery with texture, enhanced that with Distress Oxide Ink, and then topped it all off with her crisp white sentiment on black cardstock.
