Bliss and Some Exciting News!!!!!

Hi!

I was recently emailed by Joanna Munster the owner of Inspired By Stamping  if I would like to join her Design Team. I happily accepted and I am proud to be a new member of the Inspired By Stamping team.  You can read Joanna's introduction post here.

Here is a card I created using Inspired By Stamping Sweet Aviary
I started this card by piecing together my patterned papers and adhering to my kraft card base. I then added some beautiful pink trim across the upper portion of my card front. I then added two hand-cut banners to the upper right corner of the card front varying the lengths. A hand-dyed doily in Antique Linen was cut in half and added to the lower portion of my card face.
A heart was cut in kraft cardstock using the Cricut. This sweet little Aviary image was stamped, in Vintage Sepia in the center of the heart which has been distressed with tea stain ink and Antique Cream paint added. A small pink button was added to the cage as a decorative touch. A fussy seam binding bow tops the heart embellished with a button, some twine and a darling sentiment tag which was computer generated. The precious bird is also from Sweet Aviary.
I drew inspiration from CR84FN color inspiration.
Go Fish Challenge - Anything Goes
Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge - Uses Snippets on this make.
I am also excited to share that this card was chosen as a Top Three Award winner at The Kraft Journal.
Thank you so much as this is the second award for this card! I am truly overjoyed! 
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my news, have a terrific weekend!
~Tammy~
