White Picket Fence

*This post is part of the January promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.* 
Morning, I hope everyone's having a nice weekend. Here's my Hobby Art-themed card for today........
I used stamps from four different HA sets; Floral Birdhouse, Nesting,
Anna's Collection - Just For You & Sunflowers -  all Hobby Art stamps are presently on special offer on the website, with 30% off  the regular stamps & 40% off the Christmas stamps.
The patterned card is Anna Marie Designs Powder Blue Dottie card, with another piece for matting & layering with Citrine plain card.
I used the Cheery Lynn Chickenwire Frame die to cut a piece of white card, then cut into the die cut.....
I wanted lots of white & only pale colours on this card, so I used watercolour pencils to colour the birds & the flowers & leaves on the Nesting image - I also cut off the nest.
I used the tiny fence from the Sunflowers set & repeat stamped it onto white card with Onyx Black Versafine ink before cutting it out. I wrapped the ends around the back of the layers of cardstock, so that the front of the fence is curved, not flat..........
I finished the card with a piece of yellow seam binding ribbon & a sentiment from the Anna's Collection - Just For You stamp set.
