This card took me a fabulously long time; the rhinestones around the bird (meant to represent wind) are loose rhinestones from Joann's. It took me the better part of a chick-flick to attach all those tiny, unruly things by hand! I'm certain there's more than a few of them lost in the carpet...
As for the challenges, here they are:
1) Creative Card Crew #35: Ribbons and Gems
2) My Time to Craft #84: So Many Scallops
3) 365 Cards Imagine This...Feathers!
Usually I am not quick enough to play with the inspiringly productive gals at 365 Cards, but hopefully I can catch some of their great energy. This time I think it was mainly luck that I was feeling like making a bird-themed card on the day they were! :)
To make the scallops I removed the corner guard from my small lime-green EK Success corner rounder and scalloped away into the sunset. This is a great solution for getting the most out of a great tool. You can find these little corner rounders at WalMart. I'd like to find a bigger one so that I can make two sizes.
