Olive Birdie

Doing challenges takes a lot of the guess work out of what to make when making a card, especially on days like today. During the last two days, I've had less than five hours of sleep, so if this card doesn't look right, just blame it on that!

Starting with the sketch, it's from Mojo Monday (MOJO138).

 Color is from Color Throwdown (CTD92)

This week's Shabby Tea Room Challenge #9 is to use chipboard.  The bird, leaf and frame are made from thin chipboard. I pounced white pigment ink all over it and because it was wet for so long, I ended up dipping it into my container of glitter. It helped get the wetness out, but all that glitter made it hard for glue dots and dimensionals to stick on.

Paper: Kraft, Old Olive, So Saffron, Melissa Frances Patterned Paper
Ink: Old Olive, White Snow (PTI)
Acc: Sizziz Frame Die, Bird Punch (SU!), Green Ribbon (Flourishes), 1/4" So Saffron Ribbon (SU!), Half Pearl (Melissa Frances), Multi Color Twinkles (TE), White Liquid Pearls, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Sponge, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
