Today I covered two challenges with one card: Diva Coffee Break Designs Sketch Challenge #193 and colorQ challenge #49. Both were challenges I enjoyed working with.
I started with Night of Navy as my card base. The small dots of the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates were embossed on Marina Mist and adhered to the card front. I used the Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die with Blueberry Crisp Designer Series Paper and Marina Mist to cut out the three flower parts. The Two-Step Bird Extra Large Punch yielded my Pacific Point bird with his Soft Suede wing and resting branch. With a Sponge Dauber, I sponged around the bird's body with Pacific Point ink and around his wing with Soft Suede ink. Happy birthday was stamped with a stamp from the now retired Vintage Labels stamp set onto Marina Mist. I added an Antique Brad to the corner and also through the daisy layers. After attaching the Whisper White mat to the card front, I adhered the bird and daisy layer. I was all thumbs trying to make it all line up and not have the daisy layers shift. A little adhesive on the back helped hold them in place. But I did get my thumbs untangled and finished it up. Thanks for stopping by and come again soon.
