A little bird and some petals - JAI Challenge 12.

Finally I'm back. I have definitely had a little blogging holiday haven't I??? With Easter, weddings, birthdays and a brief loss of mojo my blog took a big back seat. For the first time since Just-Add-Ink started up I missed a challenge last week. Funny that it was the 'Create anything...using anything' week and I created absolutely nothing. Oooops!!!!

Well enough about that- I am back and playing with this week's Just-Add-Ink Challenge!!! This week it is a lovely sketch challenge. Here it is:

I am so so happy with my card for the challenge- in fact I am going to go as far as to say I love it. I have been wanting to use this little birdy in the cage (from the Happy Moments Sale-A-Bration set) for forever and finally I have. Funny seeing as Sale-A-Bration has just ended! Anyway I wanted to make a really pretty card using the bird cage, flowers and my new Rich Razzleberry card, ink and ribbon and Cottage Wall DSP- so TA DA here it is:

Bird and Petals Card Ingredients

Stamp sets: Happy Moments; Petal Pizzazz; Eastern Blooms; Simply Said
Card/Paper: Pale Plum; Rich Razzleberry; Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberyy; Pale Plum; Pink Pirouette; Old Olive
Other: Rich Razzleberry ribbon; Scallop Edge Punch; Paper Piercing Tool & Mat Pack; Flower Fusion; Designer Buttons; Half Pearls (non-SU); White thread (non-SU).

Note: I got the idea for the heart behind the bird cage from one of Nicki Tidbold's cards which you can see HERE.
Thanks so much for popping by to have a look (hopefully there will be no more blog or challenge holidays from me ;) )
