Wacky Wednesday Challenge

Well, happy Tuesday, I guess- sure feels like a Monday though. 

Last night I was, what would the guys in my house call, multi-tasking. That is creating on my gypsy while watching TV.

This was a card I did with the Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge in mind which is to use any cut from the Wild Card cartridge.

There are so many different options on this cart. I challenged myself with using a cut that may be overlooked- the lattice/diamond background.

The birds are from the Songbird cart. This cartridge does not have layers, so I cut all my pieces multiple times and trimmed away what I did not want from each to get the look I wanted.

Here's how I did it....
Standard A2 cad base of off white card stock
Lattice background cut at 4"x5.35" from Wild Card
Bird on branch/layers cut at 2.18" from Songbird
Bird in Bird Bath/layers cut at 2.18" from Songbird
Tag cut from Once Upon A Princess
Sentiment from MPS Everyday Occasion stamp set
Brads and ribbon from my stash
Lots of chalk and doodles with my gel pen

This is a very sweet card. I love tiny birds. We have birdhouse in our backyard tree and swallows make babies in it all summer. Your card puts me in mind of them. Hugs, Pam at http://craftycards4u2.blogspot.com/
