CFC72: Inspired By My Blog Header

Hello, friends!  Today I have a card to share that is inspired by my blog header.  It is part of the "Toot Your Own Horn" challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week!


When I started my blog almost two years ago, the sweet Patricia Rey (her blog is Scrapflower) offered to design my blog header for me...at no charge!  She actually made two different blog headers for me, but I have stuck with the second one because I love the colors and the sweet bird image! 



When I saw this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays, I immediately thought of the pretty papers in the My Mind's Eye "Fine and Dandy Girl" designer paper pad.  The sweet bird images remind me of my blog header bird!  The colors are similar, too.  I paired it with paper from the My Mind's Eye "Ooh La La for Her."  They go together so well!


I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eight to mimic the shape of my header.  The die cut sentiment is made from a Cuttlebug alphabet die set called "Olivia," and the stamped text is a Hero Arts  sentiment. 



You can see here, with sunlight hitting it directly, that the heart is actually popped up for some dimension.
 


I will also be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp! Anything Goes Challenge.



I had a lot of fun making this card...it always pleases me to be able to use my stash of patterned papers.  Thanks for stopping by, I do appreciate it! 

Quick shout-out to my newest followers... THANKS for joining and welcome!

Have a good day!
Judy
