For the Birds

I came across a new blog this evening - Jitterbuggin'! Well, of course, they have a challenge that I decided to enter. The deadline was tonight by 11:59. Had to do some fast thinking for this one! There was a sketch on the blog and the requirements were to use a bird from a Cricut cartridge and the color pink. I have to admit I was not really in a pink mood tonight, but I found the perfect combination for me. Even better is that I was finally able to use one of my new Cricut cartridges, Pagoda.

This card is much busier than cards I usually create, but I wanted to extend beyond my comfort zone. I had some matching paper and I used a piece from almost every sheet. There were also some punch out tags that I used as well. The interior of the smaller circle is actually a tag. There is also a tag behind the friend sentiment. I looped some yellow ribbon through it and popped it up with foam tape. The dots in the Kanji for friend are done with copper Stickles (how did I ever exist before Stickles?!). Originally, I had not placed the bling around the larger circle, but it really needed soemthing to help it stand out. The larger circle is a muted pink with brown tones. It is not your bright, vibrant pink, but it worked for me today. Glad I was able to fulfill the guidelines of the challenge and do something that fit my mood.

Happy Scrapping.

Wonder how many days I can go with this card a day business?
