Noor! Design UK Spring Challenge

Yup yup yup it's that time again!!!  CHALLENGE TIME and this month we are playing with 

Thank goodness!!  So happy!!  LOL! I thought I would play with the new Pion Papers "The Songbird's Secret" and cut one of the images from the 12 x 12 "Perching Bird".  I know, cut into a gorgeous piece of paper?!!  GASP!!!  😱  Wasn't it worth it tho?  It was the perfect fit for the Scrapiniec "Lavender Mist" frame.  I love this new Marianne die simply called "Butterfly Border" - stunning isn't it?!  It even comes with 2 separate butterfly dies which I thought was brilliant!!  They are different sizes so you can either pop them onto the border like I have here or you could center the smaller die cut over the bigger one.  I've done that too and it looks very pretty.  

I made some Foamiran flowers and centered them with some green glistening berries.  The sparkle is so pretty!  I centered them upon some moss and popped on a couple of butterflies from the "Borders" 12" x 12" sheet.  I think the butterflies have to be one of my most favorite things about that sheet.  Well....I do like the flags too tho....ummm and the sentiments....OK OK what DON'T I love about it?  hee hee 

This is a new birdcage out from Joy - Little Happiness - and I embossed it using Stampendous "aged gold" embossing enamel.  I added a chipboard bird, which I colored by tinting some white gesso with walnut stain distress ink.  Then I covered it with Crackle accents to get that weathered look...ummm ya so that didn't work out the way I had in mind.  Dang it!  ha ha ha!

Well please stay tuned as I have another card to share with you tomorrow already.  I'll give you a hint....masculine.  OK OK that's it!!  LOL!!  Have a wonderful week and thank you so much for dropping by!
