Enjoy the Journey

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Sunday again and it sure has been a busy weekend.

There is still a week left to enter my blog candy.

Today's card is another using the Crazy Birds by Tim Holtz


Step by Step

1. A5 white card with corners punched with X-cut corner punch.
2. First layer is black pearlescent card and the second layer is burnt ochre colour.
3. The topper has been created by embossing white card using Spellbinder embossing folder.
4. I distressed the whole of the topper with abandoned coral and lightly touched up with ground espresso.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
5. To finish off I added one of the Crazy birds and pearl gems to the centre of the 2 flowers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Polkadoodle #51 - Anything Goes
Craft Rocket Challenge #6 - Happy Anything
Crafting with an Attitude #11 - Anything Goes
