CR84FN #49 & SSSC #53 ~ God Bless You!

 I have a fun card to share that I've put together for two challenges ~ 


Isn't this a sweet little sketch and a refreshing inspiration photo! I was inspired by the kraft wrapped packages with their cute little embellishments. So I've incorporated a few of them into my card.

I started with a soft buttery yellow card base layered with a kraft panel and a piece of pretty floral DP from Authentique: Blissful 6x6. Next I die cut a piece from the same paper pack using my PTI medium scalloped border. It had a ruler design like one of the packages in the photo! I topped this with a sweet little yellow velvet scalloped ribbon. My chipboard bird by Jenni Bowlin is covered with a script DP then layered with an assortment of kraft lace, fringe ball trim, button twine and buttons. Love the vintage safety pin I've attached my tiny heart tag with! The little dot circle under the button on the wing is a Hero Arts stamp and the teeny flowers on the tag are PTI. This simple little sentiment from Inkadinkado lets me use the card for any occasion. 

That's all for now friends. Don't forget about my blog candy; you have one more day!!  ~Lisa
