I chose the Eastern Blue Bird image along with the dogwood branch. I must be trying to get a mind set for spring! Boy am I ready!! This bird and it's brothers, the Barn Swallow and the Christmas Cardinal are three of the most beautiful birds you can find anywhere!
OK, this is how our challenge works:
Each week we will choose one random winner, who will receive a free digi of their choice from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe and a badge to display on your blog. If you use a Sugar Creek Hollow image you will get two entries in the random draw. Just follow the instructions on the sidebar to link your second entry.
Each week the Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will get a badge to display. One overall winner will be chosen each month from the Cards of the Week. That person will be invited to be a Guest Designer and participate in the next challenge. An image will be provided to them to work with. The Card of the Week prize will be awarded once we reach a minimum of 10 entries.
I chose to use a sketch from Stamp With Fun #98 for designing my card this week.
My papers are K&Co and Club Scrap. I used a cuttlebug to emboss the strip of blue, I put versamark on the inside of the folder, after dry embossing I sprinkled it with gold glitter embossing powder and heat set it. I did the same thing to some small scraps of green paper to get the leaves which were punched with a MS punch. I have become addicted to stitching around my paper and seem to do it every week. I love the look it gives! I used the gold cord to enhance the buttons and the bow, some gold stickles as the center of the dogwoods and a Sakura glitter pen on the flowers. I hope you like the way it turned out! Too glitzy?
I hope you will join us this week in our challenge. Please take a moment to leave me a comment, I love hearing from you. Thank you so much for stopping by, good luck on your entry!!
