Papercraft Star and Flamingo Freebie

For this weeks challenge at Papercraft Star I created a card. The challenge for week 30 was to scraplift from one member of the design team. I chose Jan's DT submission from week 28. To see her submission click here. I just loved the bird she used on her card so I designed my own "love birds". I also made some simple flowers using some basic shapes. These love birds are freebies from an earlier post and can be found by clicking here. I used DCWV "La Creme Stack" papers as well as some rafia and silk black flower pedals for the flower bottoms. I added a little stitching to the mat and some red stickles to the birds and viola...another submission. Voting begins Saturday @ Noon (EST) so please visit Papercraft Star and place a vote for my card!!




Also this week I have a FREEBIE Flamingo. I used it on a layout that I created for a design team call for "One by One the Flamingos are Stealing my Sanity". I absolutely LOVE, LOVE the way this flamingo came out!! His eye is a black brad and I did a little faux stitching on him (just to match the design on my layout). The "feathers" should be layered and angled upward as to add to them. I used a thin cardstock (to get the feathered look a bit easier) and then sprayed with some pink glimmer mists.

Hey Patti ! I am so flattered you chose my birdie card - it is one of my favorites too ! Your birds are so darling, and "true love" always makes me think of The Princess Bride, which tickles me even more. I am so glad you played with us this week at Papercraft Star - it is lovely to have you again.
