Dunja's Birthday Blog Hop

Hi there!!  I sooooo welcome you to my blog today because it's getting pretty quiet around here lately.  LOL!!!  I'm here for a very special blog hop for an incredibly talented and wonderful birthday girl.  DUNJA DUCKER!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY FRIEND!  I was so honored when she asked me to be a part of this as there are some incredibly talented artists here.  I made something a little out of my norm but once in awhile you do get tired of coloring and just want to play with embellishments.  LOL!

Dünja gave us this inspiration piece and the first thing I noticed was that wood panel and immediately thought "YAY I HAVE SOME" from Simple Stories so off on my search I went!  Woo hoo!!  I also liked the color palette so tried to stay as close to that as possible.
I even added another piece of inspiration from Cardabilities and used this sketch.  Wow they have some amazing sketches over there and an incredible DT!!  Very inspiring!!! 

I didn't actually have teal colored lace but had some white from Live and Love Crafts, so I used some Prima Spray - teal - and then dried with my heat gun.  I ALMOST burnt it.  HA HA HA HA!!  Ooops!  I had also pre-sprayed the teal flowers a few months back so was happy to have those handy.  

I used a Prima resin bird piece and Prima die behind the clock.   Speaking of that clock (VIN-547) it's a chipboard piece from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  Oooooo she has some great stuff and if you live in the US and her shop is in Canada, it's a great deal for you guys right now because our dollar sucks and yours is awesome!  ha ha ha!  So take advantage if you can.  :)  

These gorgeous branch pieces are also from Southern Ridge Trading Company (GAR-586) in the "New Releases" section.

So there is my project and now I'm sending you off to more amazing creations!!  Enjoy and hope to see you enter the challenge at the end.  More details there so I won't tell all!  Hee hee


I'd like to enter this card in to the Cardabilities sketch challenge #124.  Again awesome sketch!

Thank you!

I never would have thought to spray lace to change the color......what a great idea. You have a beautiful card. So glad you shared with us at Cardabilities.

This is beautiful Eulanda, I love how you have layered everything and your take on the sketch. Great idea to spray your white flowers and lace the same colour, I'm always hunting for matching embellishments I should just but white and colour them in future.
