With a Grateful Heart

Hi everyone,
Things are finally settling down for me, and even though I don’t have a water colored card to share (yet), I'm still a 'Challenge Junkie’, and have to get my projects in before the deadline!
So, I have a card to share for 4 challenges: Addicted to Stamps, which is a 'Photo inspiration', Addicted to CAS, for the theme ‘Off the Edge’, Less is More for the theme 'Flowers', and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for the theme 'Die Crazy'.





I took out my PTI set, Birds & Blooms, stamped and die cut the branch, bird and nest; then with my Lawn Fawn ‘Penelope’s Blossoms’ set, I stamped and die cut the flowers. The pink and white striped panel along the side is Washi tape, and I used Delicata Gold ink for the bird nest and sentiment...love the shimmer of this ink! The heart was die cut in gold foil, but looks really dark on my screen...so frustrating! Here is a close up before I clicked 'auto adjust' on PicMonkey:




Well, that’s it for me...CAS with a ‘feminine’ twist! I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!

Barb

Wonderful design, Barb! The stripes along the side are such a lovely addition to this gorgeous card and the gold sentiment looks beautiful!

This is so sweet and adorable, Barb! I love that sediment and the font style they used in making it. You're right, that looks like a great gold powder, even on the monitor which is never as good as IRL. Once again, great job on the challenges!! I appreciate that you joined the Off the Edge challenge at ATCAS!! Hugs, Darnell

What a fresh and clean design Barb! You can almost smell the flowers and hear the bird sing a happy song!
