Teapot Tuesday: Birds and Daisies


Hello!! Happy Tuesday!! I'm excited to share a card with you today that I made with JustRite images that I got from Stamper's Dream. I LOVE birds, bird cages, bird houses...well, anything to do with birds. So when I saw these charming birdcages from the JustRite set Spread your wings, I knew I had to have them. I combined the birdcage with a sentiment from the JR set Elegant Charms. I love it when I can mix and match sets.

Now, this card was made for this week's Teapot Tuesday challenge, and is going to a sweet lady named Rita who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer. She loves birds (a gal after my own heart), and the teapot we were to use had daisies on it, so we were to include 3 daisies, birds, and bees. Do you see the bees? No? Well, they're hiding behind the flowers. *grin*...no back door for me...lol

The medallion in the center of the ribbon was made with Silver Viva Decor gel and a Silicone button mold.

Now, before anyone says anything, I do realize the gray ruler is upside down. Well, that's the way they made the dp. There was a bright yellow "right-side-up" ruler underneath which I originally had, but decided to cover it up because it was blinding me in the photo. Since the card was all sewed up, there was no way to change the upside down ruler...*sigh*...handmade ya know. lol

That's it for today ya'll. Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see what I've come up with with some more JustRite images.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a fantastic week!

Happy Stamping!!
Tosh
