Post #1 Lizzie Anne DT Challenge!

Good morning friends! I hope you've been enjoying a great relaxing weekend! We're working on it...but here's to hoping that today realy is a day of rest! I've got two posts for today, so be sure to chatch both of them, so you don't miss the fun!
This first card, is one of my ALL time favorite sets from Lizzie Anne Designs! I've loved this little Party Animal set since I saw it for the first time. It just "speaks" to me and I find much joy in getting it all inky! And, yes, I'm in love with this color palette that I'm finding in the AC Craft Fair paper pack...100% delicious. I think I need the bright happy colors, due to A LOT of rain here in the Northwest!

So, here is how it came together. I used the current Lizzie Anne Designs Weekly Sketch Challeng, #109 for my layout. I used a couple of the fresh and very fun patterns of paper from the AC paper pack. I tied some crushed curry ribbon around the belly, with the help of my hobby blade to slit a track in the fold of the card. I stamped my birdie and colored it with some copics, then paper pierced the body with yet another pattern of AC paper. I also stamped the frame stamp around the birdie with brown palette ink. I ran the image through my Big Shot with the labels 1 nestability for the perfect coordinating shape! My birdie is mounted with dimensionals.

The sentiment, also from the Party Animal set, was stamped and punch out with a word window punch. I then punched a modern label to mount my sentiment in. Attached the sentiment to the card and boom, done.

I hope you have a chance to take a peek at the rest of the Design Team's blogs today! They are all linked in my left hand side bar. Check out the LAD blog for details about the challenge! See you in a moment for another sneak peek at some new Elzybells stamps! Stay tuned!!
