Happy Birthday!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!!

Wow, this week is flying by fast! I have another busy week and hoping to get my things done so I can get in my craft room this weekend.  I am really missing my time in there. It seems I have only had a few minutes here, a few minutes there kind a thing lately :(

 I decided while baby Arya was napping-that is if she cooperates, lol I would try and sneak in my craft room. Yeah, she took a 2 hr nap! She is teething and she just got her 6mo shots so....wasn't sure how she'd do today.

I have a blogger friend who I am constantly inspired by and I found a challenge that I thought would be fun to play in. The challenge is at Krafty Girls and the challenge is to create a paper craft that is "scrap lifted" from someone who inspires you.....So, with that being said, I have scrap lifted an idea from my friend,  Lisa over at A Mermaids Crafts.  Her projects are always so fabulous and inspiring and if you haven't seen her work...you must check it out! She is amazing!

Here is my card:



I used the Spellbinders Label Four for the base of the card and the base layer. The paper is from Basic Gray-Eskimo Kisses.  The white layer was embossed with a sizzix folder that was in the sizzix Birthday set #4. The frame is from the Spellbinders Label Nine die and popped up with foam tape for dimension and inked with Old Paper distress ink. The branch was cut at 1" and the bird at 1 1/4 plus the layers from the Straight from the Nest cartridge . The birthday banner is from the Spellbinders ribbon & banners die and the sentiment is from My Creative Time ~Gift card sentiment set. I added a fun double satin bow and some pearls and rhinestone flourishes to finish the card up.

Here is my inspiration:




I think Lisa's card is just gorgeous and  her card is much more beautiful than mine but I am happy with my end results.....thanks Lisa for inspiring me :)

I am also entering this in a challenge at:
1.) Bitten by the Bug 2 ~Garden Challenge-anything you would find in a garden.

Thanks for visiting me,
Sherrie K
