LOVE these little birds!

This bird image is one of my favourite new images available at Crafty Secrets; it's a Creative Scraps sheet titled "Birds and Blossoms." The corner swirl stamp is from Clear Art Stamps. The sentiment stamp and music stamp are both from Quietfire Design. I created this card to meet several challenges, as usual:

Play Date Cafe: use pale peach, peach and yellow
Cas-tastic: use a sentiment as a focus
Charisma: use flowers
One Powerful Hour: use a favourite colour that you don't use much in paper crafting(mine is yellow!)
Tag Tuesday: create a tag with music
Pick Three challenge: I used an image with a hat, stamped a swirl, and used yellow
Sew Many Challenges: use any three embellishments and a charm ( black corner charm at the top left)



Over at Tuesday Taggers, they want us to use texture. They have a nice little prize on offer too, from Tanda Stamps. I used Dreamweaver stencils with embossing paste and metallic gold leaf for this Asian card of love and happiness. The Creatilicious challenge is Asian.



Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. I wish you a lovely weekend, doing whatever makes you happy!
