Fanatical about Botanical!


For this card, for Moxie Fab World's "Fanatical about Botanical"  And what, exactly, is botanical style?

"The botanical style (think botany) is characterized by realistic drawings or watercolors of flora and fauna. " (Moxie Fab World)

I thought of what a fanatic about birds would do - take lots of pictures and then send them to everyone, even those who are not the least interested in feathery animals (-:.
Anyway, for my card I used papers from 7 gypsies, stamps from Tweety Jill, birds of a feather and the bg is embossed with PTI texting plate. Since I embossed the bg I will also enter it at Simply Scrapping Crafts.
ps. I have a little giveaway of one of my favorite stampsets HERE
Have a great week-end, hugs Karin

I saw this challenge but went through my stash and realized I have no realistic looking flowers.... oh well! You did a lovely job, I really like the birdie photo reel!

Love your card! I am not sure that I am brave enough to try this challenge, but your entry is stunning. I adore that it is clean, but has all the prerequisite realistic details! Nice job!

This is stunning, Karin! I love the simplicity of the layout with that filmstrip die which I've been looking for. Please let me know who makes that one!
