Tryin' Some Shabby Craftin...

and well.... I think I need more practice!  Anyway, I gave it a go and the more I try the better I should get (I hope!), right???   And this one little card is for four (yes four!!) different challenges.  I have always kinda balked at the idea of making a card for more than one challenge and marveled at all those gals who would make one card for like 10 challenges!  But now I'm starting to see the wisdom of their ways....  So my card is for the following challenges:  Etsy Inspired, Stampin' Sisters in Christ, Sentimental Sundays & Waltzingmouse. 



The inspiration came from Etsy Inspired and the layout from Waltzingmouse.   The Etsy store this week is Heartsong and I chose this fun little item from her store for my inspiration:  

My Hero Arts cling set Two Birds was perfect for the card.  I did some paper piecing using Websters Pages Petite Pages collection Hollywood Vogue/WonderFALL. 

The challenge this week at Sentimental Sundays is to use 3 designer papers, 3 buttons and some ribbon.  I managed to accomplish all that, but it was tricky.  For Stampin' Sisters I need to use a sentiment that conveyed encouragment or congratulations... Best Wishes fits the congratulations bill (but barely!).    

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White; PP:  Websters Pages; Ink:  Ranger Forest Moss Distress ink; Memento Rich Cocoa; Stamps:  Hero Arts & Stampin Up!; Pearl:  Zva Creative; Buttons unknown; Silk Ribbon Creative Impressions
