Treehouse Stamps Challenge Thursday!

Welcome to the Thursday Challenge with Treehouse Stamps! But first before we get to the challenge have you heard Treehouse Stamps has gone digital?

Yep that's right they are now offering many of their awesome sets digitally! That's instant gratification folks! NO waiting for the mail to arrive! Check it out here!

Now for today's challenge....

Today's challenge is a recipe challenge of any theme and your recipe is:
Let's "B"egin the New Year with some "B's" - create something with a bird, a button and some bling.

I hope that you will play along and link to the Mr. Linky on the Treehouse Blog. If you upload your card to SCS, PCP, and your blog make sure and use the keyword THT031.

Here is my card using the digi set Spring Blessings. With all the snow (more to come this way soon!) and the cold I thought making a springtime card would be fun. Besides when I saw "bird" was one of the items in the recipe I had to use this cute chick!

Well the chick is my "Bird" and is paper pieced with some SU designer paper. Yes you can easily paper piece digis by just printing the image on your DP! My "BLING" is on the flowers. I used diamond stickles, I figured the glitz and shine of the glitter is blingy enough! Gotta love glitter! And finally "Buttons". I addes some cute little heart buttons on the bottom of my card.

So there you have it my springy card in January! NICE! Think warm weather my friends!

Be sure to swing by the THS DT to see what everyone cooked up. And then head on over to the store and blog! Be sure to pick up your new digi or "old fashioned" stamps!

That's it for now.

Thanks for stopping by!
