Hi There, Early Bird!

Good Morning! All I have to say is that I am super stoked that it is Thursday already and I can't wait for the weekend. It will be so nice to have a 3 day weekend...I can't wait to just sleep in. So this here card is for Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #229. This is my first ever Splitcoast Sketch Challenge and I love it. Although I had to flip it on its side to get my image to fit, I'm really happy with how this card turned out. And did you see the title?!?! I used the new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers for this card. I am so in love with this paper, and I've been stalking my LSS wondering when they were gonna get it in! LOL!!! :) Anywho, let's get to the deets of this card shall we?

My base is a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Colonial White CS. I added a piece of Tulip CS on top of my base after I ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. Next I worked on the two bottom panels. This is Early Bird Apron Strings and it's so pretty! I matted the green piece on Dark Candle Glow by Prism and the middle panel is matted on a piece of Spring Moss by Prism. I inked all the edges with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks. I really love the vintage look it gives this card. Next I stamped my Bella twice, once onto Colonial White CS and then again on White Daisy CS. I colored the White Daisy CS with my CTMH Markers and cut her out. I then pop dotted her onto the Colonial White CS. My sentiment comes from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages set...love it! :) I added a few copper brads and called it done.

Well that's it for me today. I am running really late for work now, so gotta go. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fantastic day! ~ Jenn
