Make Today Beautiful – TSTR #209

Photo Inspiration #209

Hello crafty friends!  I’m popping in today to share a little something I made for the new challenge up today at The Shabby Tea Room #209 – ‘Spring is Near‘!  We are to create a card/project inspired by the photo using baby blue and include flowers and a bird!

Debbie TSTR #209 (2)

The Tea Room sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe and I got to create with the lovely Pocket Card file!  I cut the pocket using a few pieces of Bashful Blue cardstock, adhered the edges together and filled the inside with crumpled paper to create a 3-D effect.  I used a chalk marker to create faux stitching around the edges of the pocket.  I cut one of the heart shapes from the Pocket Card file using white glitter chipboard and inserted it inside the pocket.  A couple of Grape Sequins were added for a little pop of color in the left corner of the heart.  I filled the pocket with white paper and satin blooms, a cute little nest with eggs and a bird punched from baby blue polka dotted pattern paper.

I tied some Frosting Seam Binding around the middle of my pocket before adhering it to the base of the card.  To finish things off, I added a baby blue polka dotted piece of Flair and a sentiment tag I stamped using the Banner Wishes and Make Today Beautiful stamp sets from Paper Sweeties!
