Hello Friends! I hope your week is going well!
I have a card to share today that I have wanted to do for some time, but I always got caught up in other directions! Now I get to play!!
This card is for two challenges. The first is the WCYC Wednesday challenge from
Paper Pleasures and Stamping Delights
where we are to create the card using our own ideas and no sketches. It is also for the Designing DIVAS Blog Group challenge that asked us to use real or faux stitching.
I started with a kraft card base. I then layered a scalloped piece of DP which is actually wall paper, as are two of the birds! The birds are cut with Nestabilities. The large bird is blue metallic textured card stock that I crumpled and distressed. I also distressed the edges of the smaller birds and the card base. I used a needle paper punch to punch the holes for the faux stitching on the large bird and the card. I "connected the dots" on the bird with a blue metallic gel pen. I used a white gel pen on the card base. I then added a pearl "eye" to the smallest bird. The Love sentiment is stamped with SU craft ink and heat embossed. I used pink satin ribbon to add a final touch! I really like the shabby chic look of this card that can be used as a Valentine or even as an anniversary card. Hope you enjoy it, too!
Please be sure to check out the details for the WCYC Wednesday challenge on the blogsite. Everyone is welcome to play along and there will be prizes each month! You can also see the other DIVAS cards by visiting their blogs which are listed on the sidebar. As always, it is a blessing and a joy to have you visit and I hope you will visit often! Have a great week!
Blessings to you,
