Hello my friends!
Wow it's nearly noon and I'm just getting around to posting my card to share with you today! I must be slowing down in my 'old' age! LOL!
The new challenge at Classy Cards n Such is a beautiful color challenge called VINTAGE HUES ...
here's their inspiration piece ...
Aren't these such pretty colors and I can't wait to see my peonies (like the one in the photo) come out in bloom since they are the same color as this one and always so beautiful!
Here's the card I have to share with you today!
I hope you find inspiration and please won't you come join in this challenge fun!
When I received my Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine, it came with a Prima stamp set and beautiful Prima paper pack so that is the design paper I chose for my background.
I purchased this adorable Cheery Lynn Designs #B418 Birdhouse with Lattice die from Classy Cards n Such recently and thought it perfect for today's card. All elements of this card will be listed below my name at the end of this post.
I actually diecut the birdhouse a few times, and here I've stacked one completed birdhouse over the base of another in a darker shade of blue to help give it even more dimension.
How do you like my picket fence? Pretty fancy huh? LOL!
I actually had this polka dot chipboard panel laying on my work table ... it was part of the packaging of 'something' this past week and when I saw it I thought I can probably use that on a project, so I tossed it 'on the pile' of This & That on the worktable.
Waste not, Want not!!
Waste not, Want not!!

Guess I'd best get upstairs and see if hubby's in need of lunch.
Then I'm headed to Hollo's Papercraft in Brunswick, OH ... nearly out of white card stock ... time to stock up and see what other goodies catch my eye.
