Love Warms Every Nest
This is for the Crafty Secrets weekly challenge over on the SCS member company forums. It's a lot of fun to play, and the girls over there are so kind and will comment on every submission! It really makes you feel good to be a part of that friendly group! The challenge this week was to use something you had lost or found. I went with the found part. One day I was browsing around my favorite store, Creative Play Stamps, and I discovered that they were carrying Crafty Secrets!! I was so happy, you have no idea! One of the first things I bought was the Birds and Botanicals booklet, which is where I got this image. Every single image in this beautiful little booklet is drop dead gorgeous. I can't say enough about how fun and easy these are to work with!
My card base is Bazzill Bling Petty Cash. I get mine at Creative Cuts and More, which is also where I got the sweet felt heart. Don't you love it? I love the softness it gives this project.
I think the designer paper is Basic Gray, but I'm not sure, because it was a RAK, and the pieces were cardfront size. It has the look and feel of BG, though. If you know, would you please LMK? I know there's not a lot of it showing, but it has sewing pattern marks on it, I think.
To change the color, I smooshed my Hodgepodge Hardware into my white StazeOn pad, worked like a charm!! I actually like that it isn't perfectly covered. I think it goes well with my haphazard style. The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets' Bird Notes, the first set I ever bought. I still adore it.
I finished this card with a very liberal few sprays of Antique Brass Glimer Mist, because it's the one I reach for most often. After I did that, I thought that Key Lime Pie would look gorgeous here as well. Oh well, there's ALWAYs another card! (God willing and the creek don't rise!)
