PDCC #130 & FMS #33 ~ Happy Birdy!

Hi there! I have a card today that just tickles my fancy and I don't think I could mail it to anyone ~ I just like it so much! HA!!! Is that being stingy!?! Oh well maybe having a picture of it should suffice huh. I put this one together using the new colors of dolphin, salmon and sea glass from the Play Date Cafe and by following the new design from Freshly Made Sketches.


Isn't this Tessatina die by Memory Box fun! I bought this at the stamping convention last weekend. I used a tiny polka dot paper from MME: sunshine collection for it. Next I layered on this pretty birdcage paper from the BasicGrey: porcelain collection (don't tell but I've been hoarding this one for a while!). My scalloped circle die cut is PTI: limitless layers stamped with the vine wreath from their tag-it's #3 set. And this oh so sweet tin pin is from Darcie. And lastly my little focal cluster of buttons would not be complete without a PTI tiny tag.

 I do think I"ll hold onto this one for awhile! Wishing you happiness ~Lisa

I don't blame you for keeping it to yourself for a while, Lisa! It's a beauty!! I'm totally in love with grey lately and I love the softness of your card in the pretty pink and grey combination! :)

Cyndie said...

No, you are not stingy in the least--it is a beautiful card! I love all the soft, pretty details! If you do decide to turn it loose, it would be perfect for a baby card!

So ... beautiful. Love the soft pastels and the gorgeous tin pin.

Cyndie said...

Yike! I forgot to acknowledge your lace donation on my recent card, and I had intended to mention it but forgot. That is really cool stuff--I need to track down a giant reel of it! As for the ricrac--it was a gift from my Mom, so I'm being careful of my usage.

Michelle said...

Lisa, this is beautiful! The button is the perfect touch! And I don't blame you for holding onto the BG paper...I haven't touched mine yet either!

Jen said...

I know just what you mean about loving a card too much to give away! And I don't think that's stingy - at least I hope it's not! And your right to love this one. The soft colors and beautiful interpretation of the sketch are fantastic! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

This is such a pretty card!

Marybeth said...

Lisa this is a keeper, for you or whom(who) ever you give it to. I have some I cant part with either. Then I give it to someone who I know saves my cards…. they get the good ones :)
Love the papers and dies you used . Beautiful card, have a great weekend !

Colleen Dietrich said...

Lisa, this is a beautiful way to use our colors this week at THe CAfe! I like every tiny element you used, and they all work wonderfully together. Congrats on your big win at PDCC last week! I was so psyched for you!

Thanks for playing with us again!

Kara Lynne said...

Beautiful card, lisa! I love everything about it, especially the happy little birdy.

Jen W. said...

LOL! Glad I'm not the only one who does that. :) Love this sweet, soft card and that fabulous birdie button!

Cyndie said...

Lisa, you are so sweet! Thanks for the offer but I have a HL less than 4 miles from my house, so I can pick up the ribbon myself now that I know where you got it--thanks! I know what you mean about temptation: in my area there are several Michaels (one within 2 miles) and Hobby Lobbys, as well as a couple of JoAnns and even two Archiver's! I'm constantly being tempted to exceed my limits.

Oh so fabulous, Lisa! LOVE the shabby chic feel of it--and the bird cage paper is amazing! :)

Christina said...

Lisa, this is stunning! It has that perfect balance of a clean design with collaged embellishments that I just love. Beautiful job!

Lisa said...

Lisa, this is definitely one of my all time favs from you!! OMG!! That little pin could not possibly be any CUTER! How perfect for this card! Love the lattice cutouts- it's completely YUMMY girl!!
I can see why you want to hang on to this one...but if you should ever feel the need to pass it on....I'll be waiting!! LOL XXX

This is ever so sweet, Lisa! LOVE your play on the birds and those fabulous buttons framing the tin pin! Absolutely darling! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

Ally said...

This is so pretty, Lisa. I love how you've used the colors, and I LOVE that background die cut! I've been seeing lots of Memory Box and Cheery Lynn dies around. I ordered a trio of butterflies from Cheery Lynn last week, and I think they are fabulous! I love all the details. I think I'm going to have to get some more Memory Box dies as well. Nice job on your beautiful card, my friend. ;-)

Alicia said...
