Our Creative Corner 1-2-3-4 Challenge
This card is made in a similar style to Linda, The Funkie Junkie. I hope she doesn't mind me calling her my mentor. When I discovered her blog and started following her she just wowed me with all her wonderful projects and I admire how she always is very true to her style of creating. She encouraged me to get out my sewing machine, gave us all a wonderful tutorial on these seam binding bows, and said stretch those creative wings.
So, this is a stretch of those creative wings. Kristen has challenged us to use 1 Pre-Patterned Paper, 2 Layers, 3 Different Stamped Images, and 4 Embellishments. Now, you wouldn't think that would be so difficult, but once you get busy making your piece sometimes it's like going to a salad bar, by the time you've got your plate fixed, it's heaping :-)
My pattern paper is from a new set of papers from Stampin Up, very yummy. 2 Layers-I sewed the pattern paper to Rich Razzleberry card stock. 3 Different Stamped Images-I stamped the bird, eggs, and grass. 4 Embellishments-Seam Binding Bow, antique brad, crystal eye on the bird, and here's where it gets tricky and I'll probably get kicked out of this challenge--I did stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment, but I wanted to count that as an embellishment.
You don't have to pick me to win or be featured, I just love how this card turned out, so I just really wanted it to be seen.
