It's my little sister's birthday today, and as she loves wood - she is a wood turner - I thought I would do a card using wood laminate. This is tricky stuff, as it splits quite easily, but the piece I chose looked like a landscape. I didn't do anything to the laminate, as I wanted to show its natural beauty. I also wanted the background to be the focal point, so used some simple diecuts all painted in the same soft colour, highlighted with gold foil. It's an 8 x 8 card, and the birdhouse swings free.
