Lily Pad Cards Chipboard + Wee Memories Week 81 + Just Us Girls #117 + PTI MIM #47

A quadruple scoop of challenges!! I happened to be making a card for a very special and dear friend of mine when I realised that there are a few challenges out there that the card I planned could be used in!

The first challenge from Lily Pad Cards, and the challenge is to use chipboard. Check!

The second challenge from Wee Memories has ‘New’ as the inspiration….

The third challenge is from Just Us Girls Challenge blog and we need to use felt on the project!

The final challenge is for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #47 Ala Carte– and I picked the heat embossing technique to use in this card!

Without further ado…

I made the felt bird! 🙂 Put some Antique Linen Distress Stickles all over the birdcage chipboard to give it some rustic-looking shimmer.

It is a new year… and sometimes, all we need is a fresh start, right? I heat-embossed this sentiment with some white powder.

  2. Love that birdcage. this is the first I’ve seen of distressed Stickels. I like the look. The lace/fringe at the bottom of the birdcage is a very nice touch. Cute felt bird. Love those feet.
