1. one piece of pattern paper
2. two different ribbons
3. three eyelets
The paper I chose was from the new Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad Wisteria. I chose to cut the paper into rectangles, because I thought it looked like a window. The eyelets are by Dritz from Michaels sewing notions department. The ribbon is from Michaels. The focal image is the "Home tweet Home" stamp set by Rupa Shevde from GKD. My lovely sister let me borrow this stamp set. I colored in the image with copics and outlined it in cold stone by Prismacolor. My Mom helped me pick out the color choices for this cute bird. I used the petite oval nestabilities to cut this image out and matted it with the scallop petite oval nestabilities.
Thanks for stopping by, off to do the last challenge, laundry, and grocery shopping. (Too bad I can't do them in that order?!)

Next, this week Gina K. also released new stamp sets and along with the release there are three challenges to participate in over at SCS. The prize is a free stamp set!! Also, if you use Gina K. stamps you are entered into the drawing twice! I started with the third one, use a sentiment or image to create a background and use it as your focal image. I chose to use the set Happy Harvest by Gina K to complete this challenge. I stamped the leaf image using dark moss chalk ink to create the background. For the focal image I stamped the leaves on a lighter shade of green and cut them out. I also stamped the sentiment in rich cocoa memento ink to compliment the leaves. I added cranberry as an accent color, I love this color combo.
That's all for now, off to complete the other challenges!
