Embrace Life

Morning Bloggers!
Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Sunday wherever you are.

I have a DT card to share with you today.
I mad it for The Ribbon Girls August Anything Goes With An Image Challenge.
We welcome any crafty project as long as you include an image.

I made a birdhouse shaped card. The cardbase is mounted on
Tim Holtz Trellis Framework Die diecuts.
I cut out 3 diecuts and glued them together to make a sturdier base.

The bird image is from the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamp set.
I inked it on watercolor paper and colored it with Distress Ink pads.
Sentiments are from Tim Holtz Ideaology Chitchat sticker pad.

Designer paper ~ Maja Design Walking in the Forest Collection
Dies ~ TH on the edge die, Magnolia, Memory Box

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
 WOC blue pretty blossom, pastel apple blossom, pastel mixed pretty blossom, 
ivory silk flower with stamens, wooden heart button, 6mm sticky tape,
dusky blue and ivory button twines, 3mm flatback s/a white pearls,
17mm Lavinia ivory vintage lace, cream seam binding ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you a lovely week!


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:

This is so beautiful. Birdhouse projects are always amongst my favorite to make and view, so I was especially happy to see this! The trims are gorgeous and I love the flowers and dragonfly. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Live & Love Crafts!

Hugs and blessings,

Hello Katie! I have this set of the crazy birds stamps too and I cannot even tell you how I want and am scared to color them :) They are so cute, but I think I will mess them up with the Copics. Your card is adorable!!! No other shape but the "organic" birdhouse one could suite here better, and I just love how you embellished everything!
