the kraft journal

happy wednesday :)  this weeks over at TKJ their theme is cute as a button. be sure to go check that out :) great fun inspiration there. for my card i made a cute little birdie out of a basic grey  button. first, i stamped a flourish onto my cardstock, then adhered the bird. made him some little birdie  legs and tootsies, i used my cricut and accents essentials cartrdige and cut a heart for its wing, a black pearl for its eye and cut a triangle fo rits beak which i added a pop dot under. i drew a stem for the flower, and free hand cut the flower adding a daffodil colored pearl from memorybox.  all buttons are basic grey , the sentiment is a $bin from michaels. paper is memorybox brioche. the base of my card is kraft, which is purchased from the kraft outlet. thanks so much for checking this out :) have a great rest of day :) xxxshelly

Hi Shelly, I just love this card and how you created the bird from a button...so clever! Thanks so much for playing along with us again at The Kraft Journal...also, I just want you to know that it costs me about $1.29 every time I visit your blog... BECAUSE, I always hear some song I love while I am here visiting you, that I end up going to Itunes to buy for my IPOD. I might have to start sending you the bill!! LOL. Obviously you and I have very similar tastes in music AS WELL as papercrafting! :-)
