After yesterday's epically long post, here's a short one...playing on a variation of the first Botanical Inspiration post.
The color palette transforms this into a warm and cozy version of the first book mark. Shades of brown and a copper border are the backdrop for red in the sentiment and two red birds (they don't exactly look like cardinal silhouettes, but so what?).
I adore the spiky, stylized pine boughs (Papertrey Embellished Elegance) combined with the curls and curves and solids of the other botanicals.
And that's all I have to say about that.
