Inspired by Vanessa

It's time again for our inspiration challenge at Lily Pad Cards!  There is so much inspiration out there in blogland, but I chose this card by Vanessa this time.  Please visit her blog, Wings of a Butterfly, to see more of the same!

I chose a Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage panel of birds to base my card on, and pulled the colors from it.  I loved how everything popped against Vanessa's dark brown background, so I looked for something similar, and found it in my new Memory Box Valise papers.  The fact that it's all about singing is even better!  Since I had so little stamping to do on this card, I broke out my sewing machine and added some stitching to mimic Vanessa's.


supplies: cream and kraft card stock, Crafty Secrets "Birds & Blossoms" vintage image, design papers from Memory Box "Valise" papers, Jillibean soup "Blossom Soup" papers, DCWV "Garden Party" papers, The Paper Studio music dp, EK Success scallop punch, PTI tiny tags die cut, Hero Arts CL177 SparkleClear Hello Birdie stamp, seam binding dyed with antique linen distress ink, pink button, twine
