Crazy 4 Challenges....Open Heart

Happy Saturday Peeps!

time for another new challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges Blog.

This week the challenge is  CRITTERS
Put one or more critters on your card or project.

Easy enough, I hope my bird and butterflies counts as critters.... :)

I started with a base of Crumb Cake card stock. The DSP is from the Farmers Market pack.
I stamped the image from the Open Heart stamp set directly onto the DSP and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads.
I stamped the bird image onto some scrap paper and colored and cut it out.
I  ended up stamping the leaves images onto scrap paper and cutting out and adding over the image on the DSP because I didn't like the dark lines from the wood panels showing through. A bit tedious to cut out but I liked it better.

I created a nest for my bird with some twine and added it to the base with some glue dots. I then added the bird with some dimensionals.
The butterflies are from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and cut out and added them to the base.
I added a few pearls down the center of the butterflies.
The sentiment is stamped with black onto the crumb cake piece and then added to the base and wrapped around the side.
Be sure to head over to the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog to see what the rest of the girls did with this fun challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today.

What a sweet card. I love the dimensional nest using the twine.
Also the way you "wrapped" around the sentiment. Unique and clever.
