Papercraft Star 28 !


Welcome to our 28th challenge at Papercraft Star ! It is amazing to think we are already so far into this endeavor, some days I feel like such a newbie.

That sort of happened with this card. I don't have any good marking pens for stamps, mostly because I just learned how to really stamp so I haven't accumulated much "treasure" yet. This one however is a wonderful digi stamp from Pink Cat Studio, so my stamping skills weren't an excuse for not stamping.

I don't do cute much either, though I will ALWAYS make an exception for birds.

Also, Santa brought me a new Brother sewing machine for Christmas - all that $$$ and I plan to use it for cards only. How crazy is that. I am just relearning some very old sewing skills so I can do a few things with my cards I have always envied on others !

The sketch for this challenge was not going to go this way at all - I never know how that happens? I start off with something, and zoom, it takes a left turn and I have no control over its end result. I really really wanted to put on that great big bow too *sigh*.
