MCT Designer Challenge: Birdie Birthday BLING!

by Veronica

This Saturday is going to be a pretty exciting fun-packed day! First The Hubs and I will start out with a 6-mile training run with our team and then we'll head out to help set-up for and celebrate our oldest nephew's graduation party. It's a double-whammy celebration because it's also my Aunt/Godmother's birthday! 

Growing up, my nickname has always been "Ronnie-bird". It was my Grandmother's nickname (whom I unfortunately didn't get to meet) and was passed down to me. My Aunt Chris is one of many who always calls me this, so I thought a little birdie on her birthday card was appropriate.

Emma's challenge for today is to use BLING! It's easy to see the rhinestones I've added to my card, but the photo doesn't show the glitter very well. I used Star Dust Stickles to glitter the music notes, leaves and birdie and also to dot the blue strip on the right side.

The Woodgrain embossing folder (Stampin' Up!) gives this card a nature feel, but using it on white card stock keeps the design crisp. I just love merging two styles! To add a bit more 'nature', I tied some hemp twine (from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique) around the green banner layer.
