Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!

Happy Friday! Can you believe it, we are finally ABOVE zero!!  We are sitting at a whopping 9 above for today and it feels like a heat wave, lol!  I am hoping to spend some time crafting and organizer my craft room tomorrow and then on Sunday afternoon going snowmobiling with my hubby for a while....that is if the weather is decent and not back to freezing temps. What are your plans?

It"s time for another Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge! Today, the challenge is to create a Birthday card:) We all need extra cards like this, right? So, come join in the fun challenge. We'd love to see what you create~

Here is my card for today's challenge:

My card base is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. The base layer is cut at 4 x 5 1/4 which I rounded the edges. I also embossed it with the spots and dots folder and inked the edges with Tim Holtz frayed burlap. The birdie is cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge at 3 1/2 plus the layers. The papers are My Minds Eye-Fine and Dandy Boy and We R Memory Keepers-Love Struck.  

I used Martha Stewart's punch for a cute little border trim and topped it off with a sparkly sheer double bow, twine and button. The banner tag is fussy cut and the sentiment is stamped with My Craft Spots Birthday Wishes stamp set. 

Thanks for stopping! Now, be sure to go see what my amazing DT sisters created for you and then come 
back and join in!! 
Have a great weekend!
