Birdie Darling

Today I used a mix
of elements from Prima and Glitz to make this card.

The card base is
white canvas textured Core'dinations cardstock. The designer papers are Fairy Belle "Le Toulle" from Prima and Vintage Blue "Rose" from Glitz. I distressed the edges with my paper distresser and sponged them with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

The Birdie Darling die-cut
is a Glitz Vintage Blue Whatnot that I purchased from Audrey Pettit's Your Crafty Friend's Etsy shop. The chair is a Prima Printery chipboard piece and the rose lace trim is from our local Pat Catan's store.

I embossed the Canvas
Corp mini bag with the Textile Texture folder by Cuttlebug and sponged Faded Jeans DI on the raised pattern. The round and the No. pieces are Prima's Fairy Belle chipboard stickers. The paper heart doily is from my stash.

I covered the the
size #5 manila tag with Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, blending the two together then spraying it with Baby Blue Eyes Aqua Starburst Spray. I stapled on a Glitz Vintage Blue Peek-a-Boo and added a white crinkled seam binding bow and a Prima Vintage Trinket birdcage.
This card has been a journey in itself... loved making this one!
I have a ton of odds
and ends I need to put to use. I have a goal of digging into all these older bits that are lying around on my shelves and making something useful of them. Hopefully you'll see some projects here soon made from my stash.
Have a great Thursday, friends!

Thanks for the visit!

My goodness, this is so pretty! Love that antique chair, the 'Birdie Darling' panel behind it, and the tiny birdcage charm. So 'charming'!
