Mixed Media Birthday

Hello Everyone!

That's right, I said mixed media! Well I guess this is about as mixed as my media gets nowadays. A little paint, some ink, some matt gel and lots of microbeads and seed beads. The papers are from Prima's Salvage District. I love the neutral grey tones, I can add any colour flower to it I want and it always matches!

The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the wood embellishments are from Scrapiniec, the sentiment is from Pion Design, all the pearls are from The Ducks Doodahs and everything else is from my stash.

It has been just like spring here this past week. Absolutely gorgeous! Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to get outside and enjoy it, so another round of winter photos will have to do for today.



"I have on my most serious cute face! Is it working? Do I get a treat?"

"I'm just gonna wait until you put the camera away lady, I'm shy ok!"

"Now why the heckfire would she put the food way up there in that cage?"
~The Cute Twin~

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.


  1. Gorgeous lacy card and wonderful nature photos.Have a lovely day! Hugs, Valerie

  2. A beautiful card, the pink tones of the flowers look gorgeous against the grey and white lace.
    Lovely wintry photos, although we've got our own winter back again, lots and lots of snow - and for the rest of the week.

  3. The beautiful flowers, lace and pearls look amazing against the soft grey papers, a fabulous creation Pamellia.
    Very cold here today. Deep snow (unusual fo this part of the UK) ble skies and brilliant sunshine.....looks beautiful but I still don't like it!

  4. The grey papers are perfect, as you say, for any colour and boy does it look amazing with those beautifully pinks. Love your 'Mixed Media' card x Cute photos too x

  5. Beautiful card, Pamellia! Love the pink against the greyish background. Sweet photos--I never tire of winter scenes. We still are on a see-saw with the temperatures here!

  6. Absolutely stunning, Pamellia!! I love seeing your mixed media cards!! Your shabby layers are perfection, as always!! I love the gorgeous pearl and gem decoration!! The pink with the neutral tones is gorgeous!! I love, love this!! Spectacular card, my friend!!

    Daisy is so adorable!! What a sweet face!! The Cute Twin is too cute!! We're getting spring-like weather, too, with lots of rain. It's raining right now. The rivers are flooding just south of here. I'm just hoping we've seen the last of the snow. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!! Big hugs :)

  7. Those gorgeous gray papers look stunning with the white and pink elements on top on this wonderful card Pamellia. I think I might just 'need' those papers now (as if I don't have enough - lol).

    I love the faces on all of the squirrels today, they are so very cute. We have about 4 inches of snow today and there is a blizzard outside so we are staying warm and cosy inside - we are just not used to it over here and they have not cleared any of the roads in our village... sadly. Stocked up with lots of food! Hugs, Anne xx

  10. Awwww... It's so sweet and elegant, Pamellia!!! Great mixed media card, love all the different materials you used here, especially the microbeads! The wooden intricate shapes with the pearls are fabulous touches, they give a lot of interest to the whole creation! Love the light look with all the transparencies! Great choice with the neutral grey tones, too! They make the pink roses pop so well! Amazing card!
    Adorable birdies and squirrels! Looove so much especially the cute face of the sweet Daisy! And such serious face has that traily friend! Surely he need a peanut! :)

  14. Oh my .. Another heavenly creations Pamellia! I agree with you about those papers. The grey is perfect with whatever colour you chose to add to it and it really looks fabulous with the pink and white. Once again the layers of lace and tulle and different elements are perfect and I really love the gems and pearls .. they add a lovely touch of bling and elegance!! Beautiful!!
    Your little friends are looking so sweet today!! I always love it when you add a photo of the cute little Chickadees .. they always look so plump and gorgeous! Your little squirrel friends are always cute .. love their shiny bright eyes .. so adorable!!

  16. Love the pink and grey colour combination Pamellia, such a lovely card as always
    Donna xx

  17. Always such a joy to see your so very beautiful creations, the grey and pink are just fabulous and I have a new word to describe it "diaphanous" yep! I'm looking for words to describe your work as the "normal" ones are understated. LOVE your photos as always.

    We have a red warning for snow and cold here in Wales today, so keeping inside and in the warm.
    Keep warm and safe.

  18. This is beautiful Pamellia. I agree about the greys the compliment so many other colours and the pink is perfect.
    Sadly Spring seems a long way off for us in the UK, we've had our worst snow storms for many years and I'm trying to keep up with feeding the little furries that come into my garden

  19. Dropping by with heartfelt love, and thanking you for sharing your pretty artwork. Please forgive my copy and paste today. But I want you to know that I’m thinking of you with fondness. Hugs, de

  20. Oh, this card is just sooo pretty, the pinks and greys work so well, what a great combination. I love all the little pearls, they work so well with the pink flowers and the lace, so romantic.

  21. Oh, my word, this is just breathtaking, Pamellia!The pearls, the lace, the beautiful pinks against the neutral background all just delight the eye! Oh, squeal! I love seeing those laces peeking out between the layers and those delicate chippies! Love, love, LOVE!

    And your snowy landscape and wildlife amongst the snow bring such joy! You have more unpredictable weather than we do! Spring then summer all within days! Wow! Sending warm hugs!

  22. Hi Pamellia
    Now, this is a different shaped card for you lol!!!
    Grey and pink is always a fab colour combo (It saw me well through the 80's lol!!!) so this works beautifully. Love the brooch embellishment.
    Best wishes.
