Card for Three Challenges

Happy Wednesday, bloggers! It was spitting snow this morning so what better way to pretend it wasn't happening than hiding in my craft room :) I have a card to enter into three challenges today. The birdhouse, flowers and congrats were cut from the Cindy Loo cart. The tree was cut from Serenade. The robin and nest were cut from Picturesque. The background paper is from K & Company and the glitter paper is from DCWV All About Girls. I embossed the tree trunk with the Tim Holtz wood grain folder, and the leaves and card base with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder. I added Angelina fibers in mint sparkle for the bird nest. (Sidenote - Angelina fibers are sooo hard to work with! I get the stuff everywhere and it sticks to all my fingers! If anyone has used it and knows how, please let me know ;) I use ribbon from Michaels in white sparkle and silver mesh. I added pearl accents for the center of the flowers and a crystal for the bird's eye. Foam dots were added to the bird, birdhouse and nest to make them pop off the page.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion #7 - New House (my birdie is leaving the nest for his first house!)
Amber's Crafts and Stuff #3 - Anything you want using flowers.
The Paper Variety -  Recipe Challenge 1, 2, 3 of your choice. My one is Angelina fiber. My two is two ribbons and two different gem embellishments, pearl and crystal. My three is three flowers and three different Cricut carts used.

Thanks for stopping by and becoming a friend. I scrolled thru your older posts and saw lots of pretty cards, (loved the cedar wax wing, it is an extreme rarity for us to see any of those around here.) I wanted to see some of your clay figures/projects. The post that really caught my eye was your craft room. I am soooo jealous for so many reasons (mainly the amount of "stuff" and the unbelievably organized neatness. Looking forward to following and seeing more.
