Come Fly With Me

Hello Friends!
I am the hostess for our challenge at "The Sisterhood of Crafters"
and the theme I chose is "Come Fly With Me"!

When I chose this as our theme my idea was a hot air balloon
or something to that nature, but then remembered I had this
"hadn't been used" and "much neglected"
 Stampin' Up elegant bird die!!

I cut my bird from a scrap of SU paper, 
and had a great time embellishing it with a feather,
My Favorite Things flourish, tiny yellow crochet doily,
yellow Rose, and a few tiny leaves.

The background is from an Impression Obsession gingham stamp,
stamped with SU Groovy Guava ink.
I stitched this onto SU So Saffron card stock a couple of times.

The sentiment, I love!
It's from B-Line Designs.

I finished with a bow and a few large sequins.
I really love how this card turned out!

Pop on over to "The Sisterhood" and see what my
teammates have to inspire YOU to join in!!

Entering the following challenges:
NBUS .... Anything Goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon .... Bright Spring Colors
Papertake Weekly ....A Cut Above~(Die Cuts)
Monday Morning Challenge .... Think Spring
Monday Mood Board #8 .... Inspiration Board

This is really pretty. I like that background stamp that you used! (I'm a gingham gal!) great sentiment too.

Leslie Miller said...

Of all the things that are gorgeous and awesome about this card, I was drawn immediately to that Guava swirly flourish die cut! Go figure. But then I checked out the gingham stamped background and the utterly fabulous bird -- wow! So much to love! Bet you wondered why you waited so long to use that bird die now, right? Happens to me all the time!

Darnell said...

I love that sediment, too, Diane, and I love all the elements you have added to make it complete! I especially love your bird cut from the SU watercolor paper, which I have and didn't think to use in this way! Thank you for the inspiration and thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4!! Hugs, Darnell
