CMD - Challenge 8

I normally don't make this many cards in one day - this is my fourth - but a Norwegian card making magazine and website- Ett Trykk - is having 12 challenges for yesterday's Card Making Day and they are closing later today. I'm not going to do all 12, but I'd love to make a couple more, they're all such inspiring cards to CASE. A requirement is to use products from Norsk Stempelblad (my sentiment).

This card is for challenge number  and here's the card to CASE:

I used a bird, allready stamped and cut since a while back. I die cut a fence for it (Marianne die) and used a flower and leaves branch die (Memory Box), cut with both black and newsprint DP. The background paper is from Authentique. Added dots with a black pen around all the edges. Bling and pearls from stash.

This card is for:
Ett Trykk - CMD #8
Crafty Catz - #340 Birds of a Feather
4 Crafty Chicks - #318 Anything Goes & Crazy Egg
Just Add Ink - #331 Just Add Wings

You've made this look easy Pia, I'm sure it wasn't really, the newsprint paper was inspired as was the music paper for the bird.

A BEautiful card Pia..LOve the paper print papers and this sweet little fence.
It's the first time I'd every cased a card? It did tend to take me out of my comfort zone, but, enjoyed it.

Marina said...

It sounds like the 12 challenge website was very motivating! This is very pretty - I think the stamping on the bird and leaves is beautiful.
