Welcome "Tweet" Baby

Lace, twine, distressing, buttons and sewing. 

The challenge this week on Little Paper Shop is distressing, so I used ink to add a vintage touch to all the ivory.  This card is based on Card Patterns sketch #72 , which reminded me of a quilt.  I did flip the sketch and added the tag, but all the elements are there.  To create my quilt, I stamped the script from LPS's Behind the Scenes and then punched out 3/4" squares, matted and sewed away.  The little bird nest was inspired by Joy, who used twine to create the cutest nest HERE.  I pulled out my crimper (and dusted it off) to create my nest - I distressed first, then crimped and cut.  Pink is the challenge on Charisma Cardz.  This fits with the fact that I am thinking pink for my pregnant cousin.  She does not know the sex, we will find out when the little one arrives next week (I am hoping I get to give this card!).
Plus, this week Moxie Fab World is challenging all of us with a different style each day.  I am going with Shabby & Vintage on this one.

Smiles,
Julie
