Vintage Thank You Card with Fairy Tangles Broody Hummer at Open Minded Crafting Fun

It's Mid-Way at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges Challenge #38 challenge is Doodles. Our fabulous sponsors for this challenge are:

Life has been crazy here with first Bob having surgery last week and me this week . . . we're just falling apart and hoping things are now on the mend for both of us . . . with this being said, I want to extend a special thank you to my dear friends for bearing with me and for Marcie for "depositing" me at the hospital. I used Fairy Tangles Broody Hummer which I colored and decorated as it reminded me of a antique vintage bird pin cushion: 

  • card is a 5 x 7 inch card using taupe Recollection card stock with scraps for background
  • Broody Hummer was colored using Whisper Strokes Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils and fussy cut around the edges
  • Darice Glossy Accents on the "eggs"
  • Stickles for berries and beads
  • Miriam's Crafting Supplies filigree flower embellishment and peach flat/back pearl in center of flower
  • stickpin made using beads just laying around minding their business!!!
  • Queen & Co. black pearl for eye and gold for center of "tuft"
  • lace has been hand-dyed
  • sentiment, "Touched by your Goodness lifted by your Kindness Thank you", had been a previous freebies from Create with TLC chalked around the edges with faux stitching around the edges of both the scraps and background
  • Martha Stewart Eyelet punch used on border of scrap background
