New Home

Here is my take on the card pattern's sketch, I rotated it 90 degrees counter clockwise and went from there. I decided to put together this card with some of the newest goodies from CHA 2009, and our kit that will be released April 1st. This card also falls into the guidelines set by 365 card's challenge to create a nature scene. I had created this card with this very theme in mind before the challenge was even set, so I just had to share it. The background paper mimic's sun-ray's, the crystals are representative of a warm breeze and this little bird has a new home. His nest and the backgound for the tree was created by taking apart a Lollipop Frosty Orange Flower. The cardstock and background paper are from next month's Fawnd of You kit, as are the chipboard tree and the patterned paper with the owls on it. The stitches were made with In Stitch'z Floss, and the rhinestones are Prima's Clear Say it In Crystals and the letters are Prima too, just using up left overs from past kits. Lastly the flower on the bird is from the Queen and Co. new bulk mini flower set.
