"If The Shoe Fits" Happy Birthday

Well this week over at the If the shoe fits Challenge blog the girls are celebrating their birthday with a special birthday challenge You have to use the following 10 items on your project.
Here's what I used;
1. Something Blue, The flourish
2. a Bird, I stamped the Tim Holtz Bird
3. Brad(s), 4 pewter, one in each corner
4. something stamped, the friends sentiment
5. ribbon, Anna Griffin duck egg ribbon across the corner
6. Chipboard, 3 chipboard hearts I distress inked them
7. Flower (s), Hero Arts Collage flowers
8. Button, 1 cream BG button
9. Bling 3 gem clusters
10. My Wildcard item is; String
This is not my usual style but hey its good to have a change and it gave me a chance to break out my new colour Tim Holtz distress ink and stamps, it was a tough challenge the girls set but I really enjoyed making something a bit different, Normally I combine as many challenges as I can (I think you know that !! lol) but this one is just for the birthday girls over at If the shoe fits Challenge
Have a great day

That does sound like a tough challenge, and you executed it so well. Are the flourishes the ones your hubby cut and you glittered, if so another fab job. Good luck with the challenge Julye

Wow, I would not have known where to start on that one, great job getting it all on. I love that sentiment, it's fabulous, and of course the sparkly swirl, I love anything sparkly :)

Thats turned out lovely! I love the sparkle.
I've been looking at this challenge and wanting to join in but I can't seem to fit all the items on a card and make it look ok.
I need to look for a bird too, I have the perfect ones on the computer but I have no printer at the moment!

Marisa said...

Hi Susie, this is different from your usual cards, isn't it? I find it very hard to break away from my usual style so well done. Love the glittery flourishes.

Tracy said...

It might not be your usual style Susie, but it really looks great and that flower looks fab. All your embellies go great together and the card is not over powering even though you had to use everything on that list.
Job well done i'd say.
Happy crafting

I've had a piece of paper on my desk for a few days now listing all the bits n bobs for this challenge ,my image is coloured in but I just can't seem to get ot together.Your card is lovely and doesn't look messy or over the top considering how much stuff you have to include. Have a good weekend.
