A little bird told me…

…It’s time to Celebrate!

Inside the card.I think you can tell from the colours I’m finding it hard to let go of Summer!!Maybe it’s because here in the U.K. we didn’t really have one!

The challenge for this week at Pear Tree Designs is CELEBRATION!So whether it’s a Birthday,Wedding,Anniversary,New Baby or any reason to think of to celebrate we’d love to see you card/project!!We have a fabulous sponsor too.Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More  are offering the phenomenal prize of 5 digital stamps or paper sets!!With all that on offer you’ve no excuse not to play along!!For the rules and see the fantastic DT samples please click on the link above.

I’ve used A Little Birdie Told Me  from Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More and coloured it with Promarkers.Inside I’ve used a resized (love how you can do this with digis) version of the image and cut out just the birdie.It’s sooo tweet!!Hee hee.I just couldn’t resist using the freebie from Craft Stamper magazine again!(the frame has been coloured with Promarkers)I’ve also used a dot of Glossy Accents on the eyes and some Diamond Stickles on the flowers and frame of the word stamp.The other wording has been created on the computer and printed straight onto the DPs.I’ve made the flowers myself using a mix of the daisy element on the Cuttlebug OliviaAlphabet Die and a Craft Tonic flower punch with same DPs as on the card.I’ve used a fine liner pen to create faux stitching to make it look as if the two pieces have been sewn together on the band across the card.The ribbon which was originally cream has been coloured to match with Promarkers.It’s a great way to get a perfect match to your project and it saves money as you can buy more reasonably priced rolls in cream or white.Although I have a tendency to spend far too much on crafty goodies I do try very hard to snatch a few pennies back!
