Home Sweet Home

This is my last card challenge post.  Well, for at least the next day or so. It is way too much fun but I need a little more sleep and my work is being neglected!  I am sure this familiar to most of you.  It is just so hard to resist the challenges especially when the colors are so tempting.

I love this one from Color Q:

Here is my take on it.  I now know for a fact that I do not own a piece of purple paper.  I do have to ask myself how that is possible when I look at my paper stash.
You may have noticed that I have a thing for vintage.  So, I spend a lot of time looking for vintage or vintage inspired images to use on my projects.  One of my favorite sites is The Graphic's Fairy.  The beautiful Bird with Banner can be found on her site as well as the image of the Birds Eggs.
The design for my card is from Page Maps.  This site is awesome for scrapbook page layouts too.

I am sure I will be back sooner than I intend.


  1. I love this card - you've used my absolute favorite bird egg plate with the pink! eggs from Graphic's Fairy.

  3. I really love this! Your use of the images is wonderful. What a truly beautiful card. Thanks for sharing! Corinne

  4. Such a gorgeous card!! The bird engraving looks so beautiful with the egg print, and the color scheme is really lovely, I don't miss the purple at all! Thanks so much for playing along today for "Brag Monday".

  5. No purple paper? Do I need to emergency ship some to you?

    But, necessity is the mother of invention and this piece is wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
