  4. All we need is just a small dot of ink. I did not add more until I had 3 cards done.

  7. I die cut a bunch of feathers with Echo Park All About a Boy paper and did a little mix & match. Like all other Echo Park paper, the colors in this collection work very well together. I love that they added a woodgrain pattern in the cheerful blues/oranges combo.

I love the pattern! I like how well the colors go together. This is actually too much for a baby shower. It can also be used as invitation to any parties and celebrations. It's a bit difficult to make though, but maybe I can think of an easier way to make the patterns without using the presser. I soo love this card! I hope you can show me more designs and patterns.
