Too Cute Tuesday


So I am not totally sure if I like the way this card turn out. It took me forever to finish it since I always felt something was missing. I used my new Stampendous Clear stamp "Feather Flourish" that I bought in Eclectic Paperie. I was searching for these birds everywhere since I kept seeing them pop up all around other blogs and SCS. I feel in love with the whimsical look but when I got mine I was at a stump:( For the bird I combined stamping on SU VV and Basic Grey DP. I put some rhinestones also to add bling to the tail feathers. Other paper used is SU Pale Plum, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, and Close to Cocoa. The ribbon is SU and May Arts. The hardware is SU and the flowers are Primas. Other accessories are decorative scissors and SU Oval punch. Techniques are faux eyelets, sponging, and paper distressing. Well off I go to get ready to go to the circus with DH and DS. I can't wait to see how DS reacts to the animals and clowns. Hopefully good. I will let you guys know how it went tomorrow!! Hugs Ana

Ana, I think this card turned out great. It sounds like you really struggled with it, but it certainly doesn't "say" it. It is another bang up job!
