A Little Birdie Told Me ...

I wanted to share some exciting news. Korin from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps featured a card of mine on their challenge blog. I never had anyone say "Hi Ren-Yi! Love your card! How creative :)! In fact, I love it so much, I featured it in our Sweet Stop post today" out of the blue. I was tickled! Ok - so little things make me happy ;)

I mentioned how November is Crazy Birthday Month! I thought I would pull out my Elzybells out and give them some inky love. A real shocker, right? It's not a Waltzingmouse Stamp ;)

I remember reading that wee Memories was having a Birthday-theme challenge this week. And here the proof that my memory isn't failing me:



The cute birdie in Elzybells and the hot craze for tweets really inspired this card:

Happy Birthday

Stamps: Little Birdie Told Me (Elzybells)
Paper: Paper Basics Card Stock - True Black (Papertrey Ink); Oasis (SEI); Basic Card Stock - White (Recollections)
Ink: Pigment - Black (Colorbox); Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Terra Cotta (Papertrey Ink)
Embellishments: Soft-core Color Pencils (Prismacolor); Jewel (Memory Box)


I dared to add a lil bit of gems to the center of the flowers for a boy card. I hope I am forgiven. Here an up close look of the party animals:

Happy Birthday

Thought keeping the sheep a lil grey and plain and making everything around it dazzle color was the way to go. And a big happy birthday shout out to wee Memories!

HI! So glad to have "met" you through the SNS birthday hop! Your card is adorable! And I love your other work too, scrolled through a bit and see you've done some amigurmi too! I also love to crochet though I've taken a break for a bit lately. Congrats on being featured on the SNS blog! I can see why;) Hugs...
