Tiffany Doodles Challenge 2

*Edited* I was invited to submit my card for the 'One Stitch At A Time Challenge Blog' for their lace, ribbons and bows challenge.  Pop over and check out their blog, it looks fun!

Hey there!

It's time to play along with Tiffany Doodles again! We have our second challenge starting today. Annoyingly I haven't had much chance to play with any of Tiffany's digi images this month, what with everything going on at the moment, but I had great fun making this card.

This month's challenge is to make a card based on the theme of birds and windows. For my card I played around with Tiffany's owls. They are SO cute! I was trying to create a scene, but have come to the conclusion that they are just not my thing!  It's an ok card, but not in my normal style.  It's fun experimenting though, don't you think?  I'm not sure if I do actually have a style, you could probably all tell me that more than I could myself.

It's also Tiffany's birthday today!  Happy Birthday Tiffany!  Her birthday wish is to get 300 or more followers by the end of July.  If she hits the 300 mark she will be choosing 7 random followers to win a digi prize.  Come on, let's help her get her birthday wish!  We are now on Facebook and Twitter, so do tell anyone you know about it, the more the merrier!

So, onto the details of how it was made;
  1. Cut out patterned paper to fill base card
  2. Print images onto various pieces of card stock, and paper piece as shown
  3. Cut out mini leaves by hand and add to tree
  4. Cut out curtain shapes, tie ribbon and adhere to either side of the window frame
  5. Mat onto red cardstock using pop dots, distress with black ink
  6. Finish off with legless brads and sentiment
Digi Images: Tiffany Doodles
Papers: Basic Grey 'Olivia' 6 x 6 pad
Accessories: ribbon from stash, Craftwork Cards legless brads and sentiment, black ink pad
