No Matter The Weather!


I'm guest designing today over on the  All That Stickles blog, and it's a sunshiny day no matter what the weather is!  I have a step-by-step tutorial there on how I made this card, so I'll spare you that here.  I do want to share, though, the card again, 'cause that bird makes me smile!  AND!!!!

    
I wanted to let you know that I have a give-away going!  When I was organizing my Stickles for this tutorial, I realized I had some duplicates.  They need a good, loving, crafty home.  So, please follow my blog if you don't already, leave me a comment, and you'll be eligible to win some blog candy that will include a 6x6 paper pack, some stamps, and of course, Stickles!  (plus some other things)

I'll leave you with a close up of the glammed up bird.
 
Supplies used: a Unity Itty Bitty stamp set, "Dance in the Rain", My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary Jack & Jill 6x6 paper, Spellbinders dies -- small oval and Opulent Ovals, Stickles in Lime Green and Icicle, Copic markers, Memento Tuxedo black ink, Close To My Heart twine, Close To My Heart Easter Wishes (B1422) for sentiment, Carta Bella kraft cardstock base. 

I'll be linking this card to this week's All That Stickles linky party -- lime green
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Marker Pop's glitter challenge
Ribbon Carousel - Spring is in the Air Challenge

I'll choose the winner early next week. Check back then!  And, as this little cutey says, "Easter wishes" to you and your families.

  9. Is that bird from Unity? Sooooo cute! I already know I'm going to end up collecting some of their stamps and never use them! I don't make cards for occasions that would use these kinds of images but I always love them when I see them used! Love your card! The bird is cute, but I think my favorite element is the frame around the oval with the bird, really pulls your eye in! :)
