Embellish It with Tuesday Morning Sketches

Sorry this is late being posted as it was scheduled to go live this morning - Blogger must of overslept this morning!

Greetings on this Tuesday morning

I am sure this is a busy week for everyone but I hope you will find a minute or two for some crafty time as Tuesday Morning Sketches has a fun challenge for you this week.

Our sponsor for this challenge is the online store Paper Maniac, they have everything you need and want to be crafty. Our challenge is called   

           EMBELLISH IT 

Melissa wants to see your favorite decorative papers, and embellishments in a non- traditional way - ie, eyelets placed as a bee trail, or buttons that fill a center of a flower, use ribbon to create a flower etc

For my card I used one of my favorite papers Basic Grey and these are from the Cappella collection, distressed Tim Holtz distressed tattered rose ink. I then used my Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations die for the first time, for the bird and cage.
Paper Maniac carries Basic Grey 6x6 paper packs, Tim Holtz distressed ink and the Alterations dies in their store

for my non-traditional embellishments I added jump rings to these charms and the hung them from the bottom of the bird cage.

Pearl swirls are from Prima Say it in Pearls. this photo shows the distressing with Tim Holtz tattered rose and antique linen inks

My flowers are from Prima and the lighter ones are found in the wedding section in my local Hobby Lobby , leaf punch is MS.
sentiment is Making Memories stamp.

Be sure to stop over at Tuesday Morning Sketches as the team has fantastic projects they are sharing for this challenge.

Thanks for visiting - I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Very Blessed New Years!
