My daughter knows her mommy pretty well - and these cards prove it! She selected the stamp set I used to make them for me as a Christmas gift this past year.  She said "When I saw those birds I thought they looked like you!"  She couldn't have been more right -- I love birds, trees, and flowers!
I used a technique I saw on Nichole Heady's weekly feature - "Make It Monday."  You stamp with versa mark on black cardstock, emboss with white embossing powder, and then color over it with permanent markers.  I love how it makes the colors so vibrant looking and they really "pop" off the card with that black background.

    These remind me of a Pennsylvania Dutch pattern. Love the black background.
