A Challenge or Two....

Hi there!

Well since I am starting to get back into the swing of blogging, I thought I would also try to get back into doing some challenges.

Firstly I saw this gorgeous inspiration piccy over at 'There She Goes'.

I knew straight away that this picture, the SU! Bird Punch, and some Pool Party CS and DSP would be the perfect match!

I am also going to add this to the challenge over at Just Add Ink this week. The challenge is 'Just Add Pearls'.

I also saw that they are having a Birthday Bash over at Ribbon Carousel. I have depleted most of my stash of ready made cards, and thought this would be the perfect challenge to start replenishing it.

Click on the pictures above to go and look at all the talent entered into these challenges.

I started with a Crumbcake base, and added some DSP and Cardstock in the scrumptious Pool Party. I used the Perfect Pennants Die to cut out a Whisper White Doily. I also used some Peach Parfait to tie in with the berries in the TSG Inspiration Pic.

I added some Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon and a happy birthday sentiment flag, topped off with a bow.

The little birdy is sitting on some leaves made with the wing from the Bird Punch, as well as some pretty flowers made with one of the Itty Bitty Punches. The flowers are topped with some Basic Pearls.

 A gorgeous little nest for the birdy. I sponged the tail and the wing of the bird with some Crumbcake ink.

I used one of the new edgelit dies to give a pretty border to the DSP.

We have a long weekend here this weekend, enjoy!
I will endeavour to be back with some more crafting goodness before the weekend is out.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Any questions, please ask and feel free to leave a comment.
