Lucy's Challenge #11


Lucy's latest challenge is to use white, light blue and kraft together...and add a bird to your card for extra points!  I immediately thought of the cute Jillibean birdhouses!  I embossed the leaves in the backgrounds with clear embossing powder on the kraft.   I think I actually stitched straight around the edges for once too!

This picture shows the dimension of the card a bit more...used dimensionals to pop up the background and the bird houses.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!  I'm also entering this for the Caardvarks embossing challenge!

Ingredients:  Jillibean Soup Egg Drop Soup and Old Cabbage World Stew Paper, PTI Turning a New Leaf and Round and Round Stamps; PTI Twine; Making Memories Buttons; Stampin' Up Kraft, Whisper White and Bordering Blue Paper; Stitching; Cricut Accent Essentials; SU Chocolate Chip Ink
