Song In My Heart

Monday, March 10, 2014

We had upper 70s weather here today! YAY! I think Spring may finally be here! And the card I have today feels like Spring, too. 
I am having a heck of a time getting my cards posted in time for challenges lately! So, I'm going to be short and sweet before I miss another one! :)The challenge I missed this time is Mojo Monday--one of my favs! :( I used the Mojo Monday 335 sketch for this card. It's a great sketch, even if I did miss the challenge! The birdhouse and music note dies that I used, and the sentiment, are from The Cat's Pajamas (I recently won a Cat Cash Code from TCP--Thanks, Alma!). The tag is a Verve die. For the birdhouse and the note, I cut each one 5 times, layering the die cuts to make them more dimensional. I put Glossy Accents inside the heart on the birdhouse, and used a Wink of Stella pen on the note and the little gingham heart on the sentiment. 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
TCP Tuesday #259: "March" to the Beat of a Different Drummer

Oh my goodness this is just stunning! GORGEOUS layers and stitching. The octagon paper is gorgeous and the diecut pieces are phenomenal. Love how you layered them up and added the gloss. A very special card indeed! I, too, am thrilled that spring is in the air. Windows are open and birds are singing. Love it!

Thank you for playing along in our Freshly Brewed Challenges Choose Your Challenge for March. Good luck!

Late is my middle name when it comes to challenges, but it's still fun to use the sketches. You're right, this is very fresh and springy! I love these shades of blue and saffron together. It would be so cute to have a gingham birdhouse in the garden. Great combination of parts to go with the sentiment. Very cute, Cheryl!
