Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge

Hi again!  Here is another card I made for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.  Today is the last day...  there is still time to play along!

This was our inspiration photo:

Here is my card:
I used the bird and the branch from the Hang Ups set, colored simply with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is from Birthday Buddies.  I cut the sentiment apart, so I could use the word "Happy" alone.  To make the word   "Happy" a lighter color gray, I stamped it off first on scratch paper, then again onto the card.  

The twine frames the card by using a really OLD punch that I think was called Southwest Corner punch.  It was all the rage about 8-10 years ago.  At the LSS that I worked at, we couldn't keep them in stock.  We called it the "Fiber" punch.  :)

Thanks for visiting today!



  1. Fibers. A blast from the past!

    This is really cute, and these tall cards are always a good way to give a gift of cash.

  2. Oh now this is adorable Kris. Love how you stacked these birds and love the twine border.

  3. Cute card Kris! I have not heard of a 'Fiber' punch before but the twine frame looks great and I love the stacked birds. Thanks so much for joining us at Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge :)
