a2z Scrapbooking Challenge

Hi there blog friends,
A really quick post from me today...I hope you'll take a few minutes to go over to the a2z Scrapbooking Blog and check out the challenge we have for you this month! Here is my card:


I used two new products for my card...Hero Arts Birds and Leaves Stencil, and Merry Christmas Messages. I started by using white embossing paste on the birds and added gems for their eyes. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, and finished with the holly and gems (from my stash bowl). And, that was it! 

 If you would like to join us in the challenge, please link your project HERE.
The deets for this month are that you need to use 2 Hero Arts 'hard products'. In other words inks, sprays, or digital images do not count. Please remember you can enter up to 5 times and you must mention the challenge and link back to the a2z Scrapbooking Blog to be eligible. Easy-Peasy, right?

If you're looking for some of the newest Hero Arts supplies from their latest catalog, please check out the a2z Store and use my Coupon Code: BARB15 for 15% off your order of $25.00 or more before tax and shipping!


Also, we have a Design Team Call going on right now, and would like to invite you and your friends to apply. If you are interested, please click HERE for more details. 

Please note: Submissions close at 11:59 p.m. EST on October 20, 2014, so if you are interested, be sure to apply on time.
 
I would also like to enter this card in Virginia's View Challenge. This month the theme is Clean & Simple, so I thought it would be fun to join in!


Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Can't believe how neat and tidy this is--embossing paste and I are not exactly friends--but I'm thinking I need this stencil.

This is so pretty. I love the white with the soft blue.

OMG! Those birds look amazing! They came out perfectly. You must be working some awesome embossing paste voodoo because mine never looks this clean :)

Pretty, peaceful and all-around charming! I have some embossing paste - currently NBUS - that really needs attention; you've sparked incentive to give it a go..
