A Great Adventure

Hello :D Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Here in Ireland the weather is absolutely fabulous! It has been dry and sunny for the past week, probably the first time in three years. Yes, you heard me right, 3 years!!!
Over at Eclectic Ellapu this week the challenge is "B is for…" Your project has to contain three items that begin with B. This week, this is my DT entry:

My three B's are - Button, beads and Bird Charm.

I used three different printed paper from the Prima "Doodle Deux Collection". I love the tones in the papers. 

With my Sizzix Circle, Scalloped Lace die, I cut out the design onto some cream/yellow art paper. I stamped a kraft tag with a Papermania Urban Stamp, and then layered it up with more paper from the "Doodle Deux Collection". The 'sentiment' was also from the paper collection.  

 I threaded some beads through the twine in the tag. Used some gems and a button that tied in with the colour theme.

I love this collection of paper, and how versatile it is with a lot of my supplies already! Hope you like this card. Why not give the challenge a go?

I am entering this card in the following challenges also:
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Tons of Layers (12/6)
Left of Center Creative Challenges - Two Designer papers
Crafty Catz - Lace and Buttons
Crafty Friends Challenge - Bingo card

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Sunday :D
