3-In-One : Shiny Flourishing Bird

It's Tuesday again... the days are just flying by aren't they? I thought they might slow down some as the sun was up longer but that hasn't been the case at my house!

This week the challenge over at Less Is More for Week 217 is to combine 3 of their previous challenges into one new card.

I chose to incorporate Week 50 - Birds, Week 71 - Use a Flourish and Week 72 - Something Shiny.

I had found a card by Catherine Pooler on Pinterest and wanted to make a version of my own in a CASE so this turned out to be the perfect opportunity to do so!

I kept the card base white and then used Stampin' Up's Everything Eleanor set for the flourish and the little bird. I found the tiny little flowers and the sentiment in two different PTI sets.

For my something shiny, I added little gemstones to the center of each flower for just a subtle sparkle and coated the bird in Wink of Stella Clear glitter which I can never seem to capture in my pictures... darn!

The card is a very close CASE to the original and I like how it came out. Plus it covers all of my challenge requirements so I'm a happy girl!

Supplies Used:
Paper - White cardstock
Stamps - Everything Eleanor (SU); Thinking of You & Polka Dot Parade #6 (PTI)
Inks - Versafine Ony Black; Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz & Cherry Cobbler (SU)
Other - 5/8" Circle Punch, Clear Gems (SU)
