PP398 Clean and Simple Bird


Happy Sunday, peeps!  It's Jaydee's turn to be the hostess today at the Paper Players, and she's chosen a Clean-and-Simple "Birds" challenge:


Jaydee and I both love birds, so I was excited about this challenge....I have lots of bird stamps, too, but today I only have one bird on my card, and it's a pink wren, to boot!  I just felt like making something pink, LOL!  I guess my color palette matches the challenge prompt a wee bit!


Anyway, I used the Fab Friday sketch:


and I did use a doily, as Mindy suggested, along with the Birds and Blooms die, Wood Textures DSP and a few other elements!  I stamped some pink speckles with the Timeless Textures stamp; I added a torn and sponged layer of Crumb Cake along with some Powder Pink ribbon and a little faceted embellishment, and I diecut my bird from Powder Pink cardstock and did a wee bit of sponging on her....cuz she is definitely a girly bird!



The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings...what a great set, beautiful sentiments and wonderful fonts!  I highly recommend it!  Be sure to check out what the other Paper Players designers came up with at the PP blog, too!  And share your creation with us...remember, it has to be clean and simple!

I haven't shared any Eden pictures lately; she is getting big and is quite a handful!  Wayne and Dana took her for her first ride in the Jeep with the top down!!


They made sure she was buckled up before they took off, LOL!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Great card, LeAnne! I love all the layers and texture. Love the pink wren, too! And thank you for reminding me that I have these dies that I've never used. I'm so bad...

I love your whole card! I'm a bird lover and think the pink is lovely on this one and the doily and wood texture paper is perfect. I love how you stamped the sentiment right on the DSP. Great look! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

Oh I love this pretty pink wren LeAnne - works wonderfully with the sketch and your layering is just perfect for a CAS card. I always forget I have these dies - note to self!!

This is such a pretty card and who doesn't love a pink bird! I love the layout of this card too. Hugs, Annie

LeAnne, I thought you would enjoy this challenge :-) I love the layout of your card and you are the only person who can bring so many vintagey elements together on a CAS card! The doily, the torn sentiment layer, even the shade of pink.... it all works beautifully!
hugs
jaydee

LeAnne, this is so beautiful! SO feminine and a vintage feel to boot. I love the pink wren! The doily and the ragged Kraft add so much detail! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, My Friend!
I always love to see pictures of your beautiful family! (Dogs included)
