As You Like It...

Our sponsor for this challenge is -

Crafty Sentiments Designs

This fortnight we are challenging you to use your 2 favorite embellishments on your creation and tell us why they are your favorite.  

My favorite embellishments change from project to project.  The ones that seemed to work best for my little Birdbrain were ribbon and a wooden icon by Prima.  Ribbons and sequins are probably consistently my my most favorite embellishments, but then again, I love pearls and enamel dots and buttons and washi tape and charms and twine and flowers and bling...oh my, they are all my favorite!    This card design was inspired by this 'From the Heart Sketch':

I used the darling Birdbrain Chick - Birdbrain Needs Coffee, I can so relate to her!  Other details for the card are listed below.  

OK now, for more inspiration and more information about the prize, head on over to the As You Like It Blog.  The hardest thing about this challenge is deciding what your 2 favorite embellishments are!  

Thanks for stopping by.  I look forward to seeing your creations!

  1. Oh this is great I love these digi stamps and went ahead and purchased two last week with good intentions of making cards. I have yet to get to them but thanks for being such a great enabler :)

  2. Well, I have my cappuccino next to me as I type so you can tell I am a coffee person too! I'm sure I must look like this Birdbrain chick on many days! Fabulous design too, and I quite agree that the ribbon and cute wooden icon are the perfect finishing touches here :-)

    Big hugs, Kat xx

  3. I love these quirky and fun chicks, might have to get myself some. A lovely card and the tag and your two embellishments work perfectly for this design.

  4. Oh my goodness, this is so cute!! I LOVE the craft and black and how it contrasts with the bright Birdbrain. Awesome!!
