Just Because Card with a New Challenge at Crafty Gals Corner

Welcome to Crafty Gals Corner's challenge this week with the theme being The Great Outdoors with the fabulous sponsors:

Deedee's Digi's 

with the winner receiving $15 Gift Certificate

My Besties

winner to receive 3 of the digital images the Design Team used

Beccy's Place

winner to receive 3 digital images or 1 Digital Set

I know when we go to the cabin in Pymatuning, I love to look at all the bird feeders in the rural area along with birds sitting on the fences as though they don't have a care in the world while they are surveying the area!!! The image that I chose to use for this week's challenge is Bird on a Wire which is softly colored with chalks.

  • yellow Recollection card stock for size A2 card and scrap paper for background
  • Bird on a Wire was colored using  chalks with gel pen and Stickles accents 
  • border was cut using Martha Stewart Vine Border Punch
  • ribbon is Sew Trendy 
  • black Queen & Co. pearl for the bird's eye
  • sentiment, "Just Because" had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC chalked around the edges with scraps for the background and yellow was cut using Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch 

I made this card for a very special lady who is ever sew talented - it is for Paulette at Create with TLC whom I have had the honor and pleasure of being on her Design Team. A little birdie had told me that she loves the colors yellow or blue - oh yes, there will be a little surprise in the card and envelope also for Paulette with the fabulous Cross Charm from Miriam's Crafting Supplies

There is a wonderfully talented group of ladies at Crafty Gals Corner and I hope you stop and visit my teamies and give some bloggy love!
