H2H Scrap Challenge!

The H2H Challenge this week is a "scrap" challenge!

I just arrived home from convention/vacation on Friday.....and boy, did I have a lot of scraps/mess still on my work table, from last minute tasks before I left!

This card came together fairly fast, compared to some I attempt with little time.These Florentine scraps; Creme Brulee, Brown Bag, and Garden Green cardstock; and Colonial White shape cut with Art Philosophy were all in a pile......almost waiting for this challenge! I cut Twilight and Desert Sand for background mats and stamped the Desert Sand one with images from the Pemberley WOTG kit stamp.

The sentiment is stamped in Twilight ink from The Best Things stamp set. I also used the big flourish from that set, to stamp the Garden Green cardstock with Twilight ink. I cut the bird from Florentine patterned paper and leaves from Brown Bag cardstock, with Art Philosophy. (I have Artiste, but haven't plugged it in yet!)

The bird's wing is twill ribbon threaded through a ribbon slide, from the Pewter Mini-Medley pack. I added a brad and corner embellishments from the same package. I added one tiny sparkle for the bird's eye! All edges were sponged with Desert Sand ink.

Create your own artwork and post it to the H2H Challenge blog. CTMH products must be included in any artwork submitted for the challenge, but it does not have to be 100% CTMH. If other products are used, a description or list of what was used would be appreciated.
