Birthday Sundaes Challenge #2
Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a good Sunday. It's still raining here, the sunshine we had yesterday was very short lived. But I hear we're supposed to see sunshine and near mid 70's by Wednesday!! woo hoo! So since it still feels like winter here it was nice to have a touch of spring with this next challenge at
Birthday Sundaes. The challenge was to make a birthday card with a spring theme and nothing says spring like birds and flowers! And, I was able to make this entire card from scraps!! yippee!! The cardstock used was a combination of Bazzil and Recollections and the pp was a scrap from DCWV's Flower Shower, one of my favorites. I used the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge for the bird and the sentiment stamp is from My Pink Stamper. I used Stampin Up punches for the sentiment tag and also used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch for the top of the yellow mat. I thought that went well with the pp that had the same effect on the bottom of the piece I used. It also had glitter on it and now I think I should have used Stickles on the top of my mat....oh well, I did use some on the bird though, couldn't have a card without Stickles!! LOVE my Stickles!!! :) The bow is made with American Crafts ribbon and the button and embroidery thread are from my stash. The thread is actually from a tin of thread that I have since I was about 12 years old, one of my first craft obsessions! I probably have a couple hundred colors in that tin, lol. I keep telling DH this is why I never throw anything away!! Anyway, hope you like the card and as always, thanks for stopping by!
