For You Chick...sounded better than For You Bird:)

I got to play around this morning a bit before the kids got up.  Luckily, my card came together really quickly.  Using up those scraps again! The bird is black embossed and cut out.  This was a "reject" that was sitting in my "reject pile."  Anyone else have one of those?  Rejection is a good thing.  It just means that something better will come along.  See how card making can be used in the philosophy of life???  Hee Hee.

Ok, seriously, back to the card.   I used some leftover DP  and lined the top of my card with a scrap that was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  I finally remembered to use a technique that I've see Betsy Veldman do many times on her cards.  You just string a bunch of buttons on twine.  So cute!

I'm entering this into several challenges today.
The Pink Elephant- Pastels
Stacey's Stamping Stage- Colors  Pink, White, Kraft, Black
CPS- sketch
The Shabby Tea Room- scraps

I also wanted to share a few pictures of something that I have been working on.  I make little hair clips for girls and I got a BIG, custom made order that I had to fill by yesterday.  Luckily I got it all done and feel a bit less stressed.  These actually take longer to do than you would think.  So here are the pictures. 

Thanks for looking and I hope you are getting lots of sunshine where you live.  It's GORGEOUS here today.  Of to clean some windows!

Cute card! I love the bird from your reject pile. I have one of those, too. I just know that if it doesn't work for one project, it may be perfect for something else. Thanks for playing along with us at The Shabby Tea Room.
