Another challenge with Just A Scrappin'!

This is my 2nd post today..... for my first post  & a giveaway CLICK HERE

Hey my friends... its another Thursday which means there is another challenge going on at Just A Scrappin
. This week's challenge is to create a card, layout or project using an animal, embossing and 3 buttons. Here is my card for this week's challenge:


For my card I used Bazzill and Fancy Pants papers. I used my Tim Holtz Carnivale embossing folder to emboss the white layer and inked it with some sky blue momento ink. I like the look this gave. My sweet little bird is from Our Daily Bread's You Will Find Refuge stamp set. I colored him using my copics: B24, B32, B45, E27, E33, Y19 and R05. My bird is popped up on some foam tape along with the sentiment which is from Paper Trey Ink's Just the Ticket stamp set. They are both on a round doilie die that I cut out using my cuttlebug and embossed with swiss dots and that is also layered up on foam tape. I added some washi tape around the tops/bottoms of the layers for some color. To finish off my card I added 3 blue buttons from my stash along with some twine from The Twinery and a sweet blue satin bow.

That is it for today but please be sure to stop over at Just A Scrappin to see what my other design team sisters have created. Thanks for stopping by today!
