Happy Bird-day

Hi there!

I have card for THIS weeks SSC Card Challenge - it's a color one, and boy, was it a toughie for me! To get me started, I used THIS weeks Card Patterns sketch....

I love tying this double bow, and using this ribbon...so light and feathery. :)

Cut out card base and patterned paper. Faux stitch checkered paper, then tie bow around. Add half pearls to corners, than adhere circular papers on foam squares. Add bird image, then cut out tag, stamp sentiment, adhere button to top, and adhere that to bow.

This is actually the first real time I've faux stitched - I've used the term before, but incorrectly, as I was using the sewing machine. This time, the sewing machine was broken, so I just used a pin and a blankey to poke the holes. :) Oh, and I so wanted to put "Happy Bird-day", but I didn't have that sentiment. :(
Just want to share with you something that I found over at the HA Flikr group - THIS set. Oh my gosh, I want it SO bad! I already played with the digi stamp, and had SO much fun, so I can't wait to try this "real" set. ;)

I'll be gone from late today to Sunday or Monday, just in case you might wonder why I'm not "ooh-ing" and "ah-ing" all your beautiful creations.
Enjoy your week, and thanks for stopping in!
