Just a Note...

Hi Everyone!
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend! I am enjoying time in a VERY quiet house! All the boys are at baseball practice and I'm home starting dinner (Homemade Spaghetti - YUM) While my sauce is bubbling away I wanted to post a card I made for a few challenges. Also, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Diana over at DL ART for the Authentique paper pad. I've used it in my project, it's just a beautiful selection of paper!!

The Bird cage/flowers are from the cricut cartridge Bloom & the birds are from Joys of the season. The pattern paper is from Authentique and the rest is scraps. 
Card - A2
Machine Stitched
Sentiment - MCT
Die - MCT
Ribbon - Micheals Craft store
Ink - Tim Holtz & MS
Challenges:
The Paper Variety - Tic Tac Toe -  I've selected - Emboss, Create a card, Include a die cut

Have a GREAT day!
