So I'm not really an outdoorsy kind of person. Well, I'm not an outdoorsy person at all, really. So the Card-a-Day Challenge (from several weeks ago) was to create an outdoor themed card.
I hemmed and hawed all morning to find something -- anything outdoorsy in my stash. I came up a little empty handed. The only thing I had were birds and butterflies. They live outside; right? So I went with the bird theme.
I used a sketch I found at Two Peas in a Bucket. I was going to enter their Saturday card sketch, but time just got away from me. Anyway...
Here's my card:
I have had the Happy Day collection from Echo Park sitting around unopened and unloved for a few months now. So today was the day I finally got to cut into the fun papers! I used three different papers for the banners and the strip. I love that little bird paper it's so cute!
I added two of the coordinating bird stickers. Everything on the card was flat so I decided to use a little foam adhesive to pop the birds a bit. I added two of the coordinating flower stickers. I felt they looked a little flat so I added a few gems to to make them sparkle!
I used a sentiment from PTI's Everyday Button and Bits, and stamped it on a punched tag that I trimmed down to look like a tag.
Well, now that puts me only two challenges behind. I hope to be caught up by the end of the day, but that may be, well, a bit optimistic.
Thanks for stopping by, again, and happy crafting!
