Delightful Randomness


Hello!  Just popping in quickly with another card from yesterday's day of bliss in the Craft Cave.  This card is inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World.  I love the gingham envelope, the sweet turquoise birdie and the buttons in the picture and I based my card around them.  All three stamps are seeing ink for the first time with this card even though some of them have been hanging around the Cave for quite a while!  The shopping ban is definitely not fun but it is forcing me to use what I've got so it has it's merits I guess.  I'm also entering this card into the 4 Crafty Chicks and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenges.  Have a great Sunday!

CUTE! I really like how you picked a few of the elements in the picture and ran with them to make a perfectly sweet scene.

I never got round to this challenge but so glad you did, that little birdie is cute on his strip of gingham. Looks like you had a great crafty session yesterday :)

Oh, so cute! You totally fooled me on the plaid stamp-I thought it must have been paper or some sort of fancy tape!
