So excited!

Because I get to share my first project with the Aud Sentiments as a design team member!  What a thrill it was when Audrey sent me the email asking me to be part of her team!  These are some super talented and sweet ladies so please stop by the blog and check them out!
My card uses Digi Chicks "Thrifty Finds" whom is sponsoring us this week.  I can't believe I had not visited this shop before!  It's incredible!  ***Warning*** you may become addicted!  I made this hybrid card in a short amount of time believe it or not.  I was so excited that these print up beautifully and that I could re size as I needed. 
I started with a cream cardbase and then layered with the floral print and ledger paper which I stitched with red thread along the edges.  I used a journaling block and placed to hang off the card slightly with the beautiful blue bird on top flying away.  Can you see the ticket at the bottom  I printed a bunch of these because I like using tickets on my card.  They come with crowns and cent value.  The red flower is Prima.  I attached a vintage inspired gold button.  The twine was sent to me from a friend.  It's the coolest texture!  I distressed all the pieces with my Vintage Touch inks from Papertrey Ink.  There is no sentiment because our challenge was not to use one.  I was struggling with this at first but then once I got all the elements on my card, I realized it did'nt need one.  A reoccurring theme for me this week.  I like my text but the ledger was already heavy in print for me and I knew I wanted the main attraction to be the bluebird. 
So hoping you will join us for this challenge.  Check it out here!

Supplies:
cardstock: Recolletions cream
digital paper pack: Digi Chicks "Thrifty Finds"
flower: Prima
ink: Papertrey Ink Vintage Touch
twine and button: craft supply

Amy, I have enjoyed looking at so many of your posts. Gorgeous detail in each one of your papercraft creations. I do hope that I do your Initial justice. I'll be doing a bit more research before I start on yours. I say that with a laugh as your posts are more eyecandy than research. Thanks again for signing up and hopefully you will enjoy my blog as well. Smiles...Renee
