Yes, my craft room is a mess! Between my scrapbooking, quilting, card making and vintage collecting, it is a down right disaster! I gave myself a little break so I could make ONE card. I decided to do some really current challenges.
Usually I'm a little behind the curve....but not today! I took a stab at three, count 'em THREE! Paper Pal Arts, Mercy's Sketch Challenge and Color Throwdown.
Even though I've been following all of these for some time I believe it's my first time for the PPA and Color Throw Down! Imagine that. They really are FABULOUS challenges. I really took my time on this card. I was in NO hurry to start my cleaning. So, instead of Clean & Simple I went full out! I stamped my image from Friends 24-7 and took some time masking off so I could sponge the bird's breast and the branch. I also sponged around the edge of my circle.
I took a little more time stitch around the edge. I contemplated, "Zig Zag or no?" I went with a simple straight stitch.
The sentiments are from Lots of Thoughts. I simply cut them apart to be little tags. Instead of letting them hang loose, I did use my Glue Pen to fan out the sentiments but I didn't glue them down the the card.
So, now that I'm done, it's off to clean!
