A Little Birdie, Pom Trim, and Metal

Friday, October 22, 2010

Happy Weekend Everyone! Well I kept variety in my creations this week. I've done a layout, an altered project, and now I have a card for you.

Recipe challenges really get my brain to working but I had fun making this one for the Papercraft Star Challenge. This one called for you to use: a "Thank You" theme, embossing, a die-cut, and metal.

I also used Kazan's Sketch #64 at 2 Sketches for You! Here's the beautiful sketch:
I'm also entering this over at Frosted Designs for their fun die-cuts challenge. I hadn't used my Cricut in a while but cut the cute birdie with the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. I dressed up the bird with this beautiful paper from My Mind's Eye. I added some pom pom trim to add some texture. I also used 3 metal buttons. Love these.
I stamped the "Heartfelt Thanks" sentiment and added it to a circle tag. The paper that looks like playing cards is from Crate Paper. My embosser is on the fritz, but I did use Bazzill Vintage Vines embossed cardstock to keep in line with the recipe challenge. My supply list was long for this one. (Smile)
And a Big Thank You to Karen Giron for my new watermark! Love it. If you need one you can find her blog HERE. And they are only $2 bucks!
