Happiness brings out the Joy in all of us!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!!
Hello my crafty friends! I hope your having a fabulous day! I have a card to share with you that I made for a friend of mine using some new goodies I purchased at Hobby Lobby:) Did I mention we now have a Hobby Lobby about 20 minutes away, wahoo!!!! I am in trouble now,lol~ The closest one before to me was about 200 plus miles so I am tickled!!!!

My card base is 5 x 5 which I embossed the front layer using the cuttle bug honey comb folder. I then added a strip of chevron pattern paper along with a border using a Martha Stewart border punch. The label is a Spellbinders Label 9, followed by a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Square. I cut the next square at 2" from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge (embossed with honey comb folder) and then a Classic Scallop Rectangle large die.  The pretty birdie is from the Spellbinders Bird Sanctuary die set.

The sentiment is stamped with the My Creative Time ~Turn that frown upside down set. I have distressed some of the edges using Tim Holtz-frayed burlap. The fun paper flowers and flourishes are from Michael's and then finished the card by topping it off with a fun double bow. 
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #151-Bye-Bye Birdie

  20. This is so beautiful Love all your layers and elements-- I guess hobby Lobby's are popping up all over the place. I visited our new one last week - but it is 50 miles away near Michaels and Joannes- Other than that I go to our local craft store- They carry quite a bit but pricey.I just don't get to do it tooo often.

  27. First off... I gotta say I'm waaayyy JEALOUS!!! The nearest Hobby Lobby to me is in the next State! For real! It's a 2 1/2 hour drive to get to it... Sooo I'm a bit jealous that you got one 20 minutes away! LOL And on that note.. Your card looks fabulous Sherrie! I like the classic/timeless look.... Or at least to me that's what it looks like! Lovely! :o)
